This is the blazed trail to McNutt Lake. This is a non-motorized trail that consists of a hard climb to McNutt Lake with technical riding and route finding as the trail is not well marked. Look for the old blazes. The lower end of the trail starts on an old roadbed then continues on single track. There are a large number of dead trees in the area so downfall is probable. This is an adventure ride and hike a bike up is probable in places, especially if you are not a strong rider.

Access Info

Access is via the Basin Creek Road to the Basin Lake Trail. Start up the Basin Lake Trail then after fording the Creek, take a hard right and enjoy the climb.

This trail is unsanctioned.

Disclaimer

Steep trail with ability to route find from existing old blazes and trailbed.
