3 mile trail that climbs up to the summit of Bolt Mountain. Trail gets rockier as you go higher. It is rated black because of the rocky sections. Beautiful local views from the top. Trail is under partial shade for most of the way. Trail surface can be muddy in the wintertime but is generally usable year round. Mandatory water crossing near the bottom is rideable most of the time.

 Whoever gave this trail five stars is high on crack!! I give it 2 at best. More a hike trail than a mtb trail. It is more like a washed out creek bed than a bike trail. Maybe that has happened over time. If you like big jagged pyramid rocks in the middle of your trail then by all means this is the one for you.
