This is a waterfall tour and includes increased mileage, more climbing and some more great scenic double and single track favourites!!
Starting out at Lake Imaging Parking Lot, climb up Lake Imaging Road to the intersection with Buck Forest Road. Once there hang a right and go over the covered bridge looking over the falls from the top they drop down to the right, but in order to see High Falls you will need to descend Covered Bridge Trail on your right and taking another right on High Falls Trail until you get a nice view next to a wooden fence on the Right. From here turn around and retrace your route back over the covered bridge, going right on Conservation Road. Look for a trail named Pitch Pine on your left and climb up singletrack into the forest. Stay on this trail until it runs into Three Lakes Trail (Lake Dense) and loop that out onto Conservation Road passing 3 lakes in the process, if it's warm enough take a dip and cool off or just pull out your camera for some photos! Take a right on Conservation Road and another right back onto Buck Forest Rd back over to where it intersects with Lake Imaging. If you haven't seen the falls at Grassy Creek yet go and check them out by climbing that little section of Lake Imaging Road on your left and taking a left where the Hilltop trail comes out, follow the signs to the waterfall, walking - not riding down. After your climb up Buck Forest Road take a Left on White Pine the Left zooming down and back up Hooker Creek Trail to your Left little climb and then whee whee whee all the way down Ridgeline Trail to the Lake Imaging Parking Lot (right hand at the bottom).
