A shuttle able trail for all bikes. Very fast, nothing technical. Very little pedaling overall. Old Forests. Horseback riders are known to 'love' this trail too. Be on the lookout for trail manure. The road up requires a 4X4 at the very top- steep drive.

Access Info

From Hwy14 head north on State Route 141 Spur to NW Lake Road. Drive across the bridge and on the left is a day use area. That is a great base meeting area if doing the 2 car shuttle system. To drive to the summit- Lake Rd to Nestor Peak Rd.

       Place is over grown. Not worth the shuttle. Trail blown out. Not maintained at all

       Lots of leaves on trail. Very steep. Road up dirt road and down trail. I would recommend shuttling it.

       Regarding prior 2 comments, trail is indeed overgrown in places, but definitely a fun ride! Could easily be cleaned up with a morning of trimming (I might go back and do just that). As for the access road, it's in great shape. Made it all the way to the fork of 1000 and 1600 (95% of the way) in a sedan with no problems. In order to complete the shuttle, either bring a high clearance vehicle or plan to pedal up the road for 15 minutes and get a good warm up before a fun ride!
