Van Halen Details

Elks Club is actually part of the original Summit Trail from way back in the mid-90s. Like the Summit Trail, this trail has two-way. Starting at the top, this trail descends down a Forest Service road & into the Elk Highlands Subdivision. Then it re-enters the woods to singletrack winding underneath the Homeowner’s Chair. This trail intersects Wolverine & Borealis just east of Northern Lights Road. Though most folks pedal up this trail, it can be accessed from the lower Summit Trail & can be linked with Borealis (more difficult) for a XC finish to your ride.

Average Ride Time: Downhill: 8 minutes. Uphill: 20 minutes.
