Mountain Bike

Start by climbing just over a mile on the highway to a trailhead on the left. This is a seriously sweet piece of singletrack. The initial climb is brutal, but once on top, it turns into a very entertaining ride. Threre's some flowy singletrack followed by a beautiful descent. You will have to cross some marshy land that will drive a dismount or some heavy duty mud. After you cross the meadow for the last time, the final descent back to the car is superb.

Never modify trail features. Ride trails when they're dry enough that you won't leave ruts. Speak up when you see others on the trail and always yield to hikers, horses, and others coming uphill. Always ride on the established trail.
