The Bluff Details
Nice, flowy singletrack with a backwoods cross-country feel as opposed to most of the more difficult trails in the Sugarcamp MTB trail system. The Bluff consists of several segments due to its length (Initiation, Knuckles, Yella Gate, Mikie's Berms, and Rainbow Connection). The trail is pretty self explanatory, and all paths lead to Reclamation Loop.
The preferred access is to follow the fire road from the parking lot about 1/4 mile until you reach a pipeline easement at the ridge. The Bluff trailhead sign is just a hundred or so feet up the easement on your right.
The Bluff continues along the steep slope through the named sections moving west and into more difficult terrain. The view of the lake reveals itself in flashes and glimpses, but you really have to keep your hands on the handlebars as you approach the steep switchbacks near the western end.
As you descend toward the campground on long switchbacks, you'll pass through an "Indian marker tree" which is a truly unique experience.
The trail connects with Reclamation Loop, which provides access to several other trails, or an easy doubletrack ride back to the parking lot.
