This trail is for hiking and mountain biking. No motors please. Ride do not slide as the Gun Lake trails have lava ash as the trail base. This trail can be used in both directions for hiking but used as a downhill trail primarily for mountain biking. To access you climb up Penrose logging road and then the Doghouse road. The climb starts to get unrideable which means you are almost there. You hit a junction then turn left and there should be a faint trail to your right straight away. Start hiking for a couple minutes and then it is mainly downhill with tight trees and some steep stuff.

This trail is Unsanctioned, Ride at your own Risk!
