Single track route climbs steadily from town eventually arriving at the connection with Trail 3d to Minnow Lake.
gradual inclines with a few technical sections and some short punchy climbs keep you focused on the way up. Returning to town from Minnow Lake is fast with flowy side hill and the aforementioned short technical sections. Beautiful views line the trail from start to finish. Particularly stunning in the fall. This trail is a great option as an out'n'back or as part of the Saturday Night Lake loop.
