| What: Great mountain bike single-track shared with hikers
and dogs. Length of run is about 4.5 miles with numerous offshoot trails. Quality
switchbacks, good climbing training site. Up & down en repeatio. Be careful to not
ruin the switchbacks. Also there are some great berms there. A neat trail
system above the new Qualchan Golf Course.
| Where: From downtown go south on Maple until it turns into
Highdrive and continue on this road until you hit Bernard and then park on the right. Take
different trails steeply down.
| Cautions: Watch for other riders, hikers, dogs coming the
other way fast. At the danger of repeating myself, be careful with the switchbacks as they
take a lot of effort in the off seasons to bring them back into condition. My wife, a
beginner biker went on this and had no difficulties even though she had to hike-a-bike a
lot. Both of us were very tired after 2 hours of riding. Many of these trails are steep
and/or rocky so I would not bring young unexperienced children along unless you want to
teach them about how to hike-a-bike at the right times.
