This trail has it all. Counter-clockwise the trail starts with a short, well-designed climb before miles of rolling ridgeline riding. Once you think you've had enough of that a short downhill takes you to the lake where you are sandwiched between rock bluffs and shoreline. A trail unlike any other.
