This is a great short rainy day ride for the kids. After parking under the power lines pedal up the FSR and down Black Tower. Left onto the Winter Route and back to the power lines.

Trail Black Tower
excellent run is to ride up via winter route then bomb your way back down the summer route. Fall rains are creating some big puddles and muddy sections but most of the trail is pure fun.
