Queen Bee is a great trail on hillside with a good combination of flow and flat turns to keep you on your toes as well as a couple of rock rides to spice up the flatter sections. It is best thought of as Queen Bee north and Queen Bee south when describing to friends where you are or enjoying connecting it to Drone Lane and Janices Jive and the Hive. The trail is multi directional so watch your speed on those blind corners.
Trail can be used in the winter when the snow is good and makes a great connector up to ride middlefork loop. Please stay off the trail during breakup so we don't trash it before the endless summer riding.
