In either direction, Beautiful Trail is both pleasure and pain. In spots, it has rocks as far as the eye can see, and in other spots it has a great twisty flow that keeps you moving.

Beautiful Trail has been a staple of endurance events in the area since 2002 and it keeps getting better as lines keep developing. Ride it in the Summer at the peak of blueberry season and you'll have a good chance of running into a bear.
