A short (0.6 km) singletrack conecting Arrowhead and Cedar Camp trails. Traverses the east shore of Cedar 2 Lake and, together with Arrowhead and Cedar Camp, makes for a great introduction to the Moonrakers. The loop is most easily ridden counter-clockwise. Named after the trail builder's dog Max.

Access Info

Clearly marked junctions on both Arrowhead and Cedar Camp. Both of those trails are accessed from the Moonraker trailhead located at the Cedar Lake Recreation Site.

      Rideable on a narrow packed track. Stick to the uphill side of the trail for the best snow pack.
