    Deschutes National Forest

This is just one of the great singletrack trails in the Crescent Lake area. It connects the Cowhorn Creek Trail to Summit Lake. It has great flow when ridden from south to north. It is not a bad climb if ridden from north to south either. It goes through the forest and past many lakes and ponds. Ride it, you will have a blast.

This trail is also part of the Willamette Tier of the Oregon Timber Trail.

Access Info

Access via the Cowhorn Creek Trail or Summit Lake via Deschutes National Forest Road 6010 west of Crescent Lake.

 A nice single track through some beautiful terrain. It's quite flat so don't expect a ripping sustained descent; all of the lakes are RAD, worth a stop and a swim.
