The upper section of the Angora Ridge Trail parallels Angora Lake Road to the east and ends at the Angora Lakes parking lot.

This narrow trail has no sustained climbing and great views of Lake Valley to the east. However, the trail navigates around, over, or below many boulders and other potential obstructions which may challenge beginner mountain bikers.

Access Info

This section of the Angora Ridge Trail can be accessed on the north end about 300 ft before the fire lookout. From the south end it leaves from the east edge of the Angora Lakes parking lot. It is well sign posted.

Disclaimer

Angora Lake Road is closed in the winter
