This 9-mile segment begins where Lakeside Trail concludes, at the west end of Lake Lurleen Dam, next to the dam spillway. Use caution. Some sections are steeply graded, sandy, or covered with loose gravel. In addition, the 9 miles contain no shortcuts to either trailhead. Plan accordingly, as you will be in a wilderness environment. Due to the prevalence of tight turns, long climbs and descents, beginning mountain bikers will find sections of Tashka very challenging.
