Mountain Biking Sweetwater Trail

****   Add a review
#82 of 1,005 mountain bike trails in California
#1,399 in the world

The ride: Start at the gate in the parking area. The trail is real easy to follow, all turns are marked, and it is easy to follow the bike tracks. The trail is mostly single track, with a short bit of fire road at the beginning. The trail is well designed, with a couple fast downhills and a couple nice rock gardens thrown in. If you want to ride more than the 6 miles, when you get to the turn-around point in the SRA, ride up the road 1/4 mile and ride the Salmon Falls (Darrington) Trail also.
