The trail consists of a loop around Coldwater lake that includes three trails (211, 230, & 230A) that can be ridden clockwise or counterclockwise. If you ride Clockwise, the 230 trail is a steep 2 mile ~1500ft switchback climb out of the lake that at times is a hike-a-bike, but there is a great 3-4 mile decent down the 230A trail to the trailhead.

Could use a trim in the shrubbery.
Coldwater Trail #230

Rode here 06 July 2021. Very loose in some areas which made climbing very difficult. Nothing a little Hike-a-bike can’t overcome. Several areas with steep northern exposure were overgrown with berry bushes. Rough climb but great downhill.

Rode the loop clockwise. This trail is narrow and there were a lot of hikers. At least five downed trees. Two skitchy erosion points near the beginning of the trail. Great Lake views. Nice waterfall.
