A perfect trail for the whole family, this old railroad grade runs alongside Lake Crescent and is wide enough for even a bike trailer! Everyone can enjoy riding on the dirt road, then advancing to its mountain trail. With a two-car shuttle, you may choose to continue all the way to the beach along a paved road; otherwise, just make it an out-and-back and enjoy the trail in both directions. This is a very pretty ride and also very popular, especially in the summer.

The description of this trail is somewhat deceiving. It is a beautiful trail, however, not as easy as described. We took our 8 year old (thinking this was a "family" trail)...there's some areas of single track ascent/descent that were not any fun at all for him. There's lots of areas of washout to be careful of...It is a very cool trail though!
