Hearst Lake Trail is a non-motorized double track that leads you to a spectacular mountain lake that has Mt Haggin as a backdrop. There is some interesting stone walls and old ruins up there also. It is a bumpy and physically demanding ascent on a mountain bike.

The trail starts off relatively gradual and smooth going through private grassland. After just over a mile you head into the trees and around a gate. From here the trail gets steeper and more rocky the further you go up. You may have to push your bike up some short sections depending on how strong a climber you are. There is also some small stream crossings.

Disclaimer

Trail starts out on private property. Please stay on trail and respect the owners property.

      Trail is good to go! There are a few damp areas around the streams, but otherwise all dry.
