The route to Rabbit Lake is a long, moderate climb up an old road bed that eventually turns to singletrack. Your reward for the long climb is that the trail ends at a gorgeous alpine lake. The area is popular in the summer with hikers and skiers in the winter, so you'll likely not be the only one on the trail.

Disclaimer

Biking is prohibited on the McHugh Creek Trail after mile 4.4 at Rabbit Lake.

      No snow left on the trail. Lots of loose rock and some wet spots, but very little mud. Fun trail, good for dogs, and the lake was beautiful, even...

      Basically a creek right now. It's going to be a while, probably mid July or whenever powerline is good.

      Good local ride. The view is amazing. Quite rocky. Did mine on a hard tail and it was....bumpy.
