This trail is commonly ridden as an out and back or a loop by climbing the Langohr Road. Can also be linked up to adjacent trails to form longer, more adventurous rides. As an out and back the trail climbs moderately through the forest, passing History Rock after a mile or so before committing to a few steep switchbacks with some techy moves. The grade eases as you contour along the top of an old clear cut before reaching a trail junction (this is the access trail from the Langohr Rd). Stay left and grunt up the last half mile of steep, rooty singletrack before popping out in a stunning meadow with magnificent views of the north face of Mt Blackmore. Return the way you came and enjoy the sweet descent that is always over just a little too soon.

Access Info

The History Rock TH is located about a mile short of the reservoir up Hyalite Canyon Rd. It can also be accessed by riding or driving to the top of Langohr Rd. Trail is on the left at the end of the road.
