Beautiful trail along the Waldo Lake. Very beginner friendly, smooth experience except for a few notable short (circa ten foot) rock chutes (three or four in 26miles).

Watch out for mosquitoes in the early to mid summer.

Access Info

Park at North Waldo day use (or camp) and ride counterclockwise for the best experience.

This trail is NOT a green trail it is Blue with a section of black. This trail rides best counterclockwise, the opposite of the trail forks...

 It is ridiculous that this trail difficulty is rated green - it is a solid blue with some legit black bits. Apparently whomever put this trail and Twin Peaks trail on TF never rode them.
