Trailforks is a crowd-sourced mountain bike trail database owned by Pinkbike. All trails found here are not necessarily promoted or maintained.

White Lake Loop. Takes you past Observatory. Lots of climbing with very little technical features.
Watch for the steep descents that have barbed wire fences crossing them and washed out sections.

 Better to hike than cycle as there's many logs fallen over the path.
