*WINTER ONLY* The Bog Loop is highly recommended for beginners and first time winter riders at Mirror Lake. It loops Mirror Lake, then takes the multiuse 2.5k and blue bog trails back to a lovely ride around Edmonds Lake in the shadow of Bear Mountain. It returns on the blue bog trail and the northern section of the old 2.5k multiuse back to the parking area.
