    Forbes State Forest

Another must do trail segment especially if this is your only visit. It is the first LHORBA built trail at Laurel Mountain/Forbes area.

The northern segment dips along the downhill side of Silvermine. It includes numerous log crossings, a short rock garden, and a short but steeper climb. There are several boulders adjacent to the trail providing alternate lines and play spots.

Outcrop crosses Silvermine about midway, offering an alternate access/bailout point. Riders will encounter a bouldery rock garden climb through the outcrop after crossing Silvermine. The rest is fairy level with a couple boulder crevices to ride through along with more log crossings and boulders. The trail ends with a gradual rock garden descent reconnecting to Silvermine at the former gas well site.

Access Info

One of the trails recommended by Forbes for winter fat biking as this is not skied
