This well built double wide trail was a labor of love, close to 3 years to completed and over 3500 hours of volunteer labor lead to the creation of this 2 km dual directional trail. The trail provides an excellent opportunity for beginners to learn mountain biking on a low consequence trail, while also providing a climbing connection all the way to the top of Dilemma (mid mountain).

This trail travels though beautiful fern filled forests, past large rocks, large cedar trees, and features over a dozen large cedar bridges.

This trail is designated as a non-motorized multi-use trail, it was built primarily for cyclists; however foot traffic is more than welcome and encouraged. Please be respectful of all trail users, share the trails.

       This trail is almost finished. Still needs a few bridges and some trail work at the beginning and ending. People are riding it currently.

       This is the trail that I used to learn how to ride last summer. It is perfect for beginners. I still find it a challenge going up on my bike and even though it is short, it always gives me a good workout!

       Riding this downhill on a rigid 90’s mtb was fine. Hard to find the trailhead marker starting off the service road. It’s the left most trail with a number of trails starting at the same location.

       I must say, this is probably the best green climbing trail I've ever been on.

       Super fun flow trail for a newbie! I would recommend climbing UP this trail from the parking lot instead of taking the forest road. It's not very steep and would be way more enjoyable than the road. The road suuucked (but again, I'm new at this)
