Headwaters Loop Details
The lowest trail on Moscow Mountain, Headwaters is typically the first trail open in the spring, and the last trail open in the fall. It's a great ride to take beginners on, a quick loop when you don't have time for a longer ride, and a good way to connect to longer and more challenging rides on the West side of Moscow Mountain.
The trail can be ridden both directions, but it's a better ride counterclockwise.
It's a popular hiking trail as well, so watch out for hikers particularly on the downhills.
Head north of Moscow on Highway 95, then turn off on Lewis road. Stay left as Lewis becomes Foothill road. Park on the side of the road near the bicycle tool/pump station, then continue up the road on your bike. Keep straight into the gates when the road switchbacks up to your left, and go around the left gate (the right one is a private driveway).
The singletrack loop starts to your right after about another 1/4 mile, and ends on the left just across the road from where it starts.

|Lower head waters muddy with snow covered/packed snow. Fire road manageable, Moose Noose connector was snow covered, had to walk most of it though...|
