XC SKI TRAIL. SUMMER USE ONLY.

Super-wide trail that makes a great escape point in case of mechanical, injury, tired legs, etc. The access from Allen Bill parking to Sugar Mama, Snagmore & Stick It. Popular with hikers who use it to access Fullerton Loop (which is hiking only). Re-routed after the 2013 floods to the north-side of the highway. This trail is not designed for summer use, so expect the occasional wet spot, especially in spring.

Access Info

Starts behind the small parking lot on the north side of the highway, opposite Allen Bill. Finishes way north near the WBC parking lot.

Rutty in a few areas. 2 mud puddles that take up the entire width of the trail. Will be rutty in those locations when dried.
