The classic Fifteen Mile lollipop route. This route ensures you get a warm-up and finish the ride with a descent. Park at the Eightmile/Knebal Trailhead on Road 44. Starts with a mellow climb along a creek up to an open meadow. Take a left to continue on to the Eight Mile Lookout. A fast, flowy, slalom descent begins here down to the Fifteen Mile Campground. There is a creek flowing here year-round that's a good spot to filter water. Continue downhill on Fifteen Mile and make a right on Cedar Creek. Descend to the creek at the junction of Fifteen Mile/Cedar Creek (filter water here, because the climb out is a tough one). Hang a left and start the grind out. Once back at the Fifteen Mile Campground, return the way you rode in. The ride finishes with a fun descent to the parking lot.

Riding sweet! Some bush waking, especially near the bottom, but nothing too bad. Lots of sticks covering the trail in some parts, be careful!

Decent number of low hanging branches and brush encroaching sometimes, very thick in a few spots. 1-2' spears in trail on upper section were getting kicked up a lot, could ruin someones day.
