Be sure to stay at the campground, tent or trailer, but no hook-ups. $8/night and very nice sites. This is a forest service campground. Showers at the beach which is free if you camp, otherwise $3/day for parking. Beach is 3 miles by trail or by road from camp. Starting at the campground, down to the lake, loop and return is 14 miles. Go counter clockwise and cool off with a dip at the beach. Trail is a blast. Constant up and down and turning, but few long climbs. Mostly very close to the shore. Pete Sadow
This is a tough trail unless you have great bike control. It is very technical in some areas, but overall not too bad. The lake is beautiful, this is a must see.
