This 8.4 km trail begins at the Francis Lake Forest Service Rec site and is primarily used by ATVs and snow machines. Follow the trail north to the old sawdust pile, then turn Northeast. The trail gradually descends in a Northeast direction, with several short, easy uphill sections. At the 3.4 km mark, the trail crosses an old bridge. At the 8.4 km mark, the trail passes by a small pond that I call Mint Pond (its shoreline is surrounded by wild mint). This trail joins Opatcho Road just East of the pond. Follow Opatcho Road south for 4.5 km then take the short access road West into the Opatcho Lake rec site. Follow Opatcho Road south until it joins Buckhorn Road. Ride this road West for approx. 14 km to get you back to the Francis Lake rec site.

This trail network is recommended for people who like back country touring or bike-packing. It is perfect for fatbikes.
