The Trap Creek singletrack trail is intermediate in difficulty and has some short hike a bike sections in steep areas. Once you get to the junction of Trail 026, Marten Lake is just a couple hundred feet to the southwest of the trail intersection. Continue climbing about a mile on Trail 026 to the summit between Trap Creek and Swamp Creek. Enjoy the Swamp Creek downhill all the way back to the highway. Turn right on Highway 21 and ride the highway approximately 2.7 miles back to the Trap Creek Road.

The recommended direction of travel is clockwise.
