Fun section of trail from the Woods Lake overlook to the Woods Lake Trailhead that passes by Dollar Lake and Little Beaver Lake. Has some of the best views on trail system. Trail is best ridden downhill but can be ridden both ways. Features rolling berms and is smooth. A good intro to flow type trails.

Access Info

Closest trailhead is the Woods Lake Trail head which is accessed via the Beaver Lake Road west of Whitefish. If you looking for a longer ride recommend starting from the Beaver Lake Trailhead as the road from Beaver Lake Trailhead to Woods Lake trailhead is quite rough and it takes marginally longer to ride directly from Beaver Lake.

       This was my favorite section of the Whitefish trail ride. The downhill to Dollar Lake was particularly fun.
