About ten miles east of downtown Spokane. This challenging trail will be fun for those who are prepared for it. For those who aren't, this is not where to learn your trail skills. Lots of steep ups and downs, lots of getting on and off your bike, and a rocky, thick forest trail make this a sustained expert loop. There's even a waterfall or tow. Connections to Mica Peak (Idaho) and beyond are the rewards for those who have the gas to get there. The trail has 1.2 miles park road/doubletrack and 7.7 miles steep, narrow, and rocky singletrack with streams, soft spots, and downed trees.

nice trail, forgot my guide so it took a bit to find it and I'm pretty sure I didn't take the right trail out (or if I did that sucker's steep and way more technical that I can manage). You'll have to dodge quite a few horse crap mines but there was no one else anywhere around on a Monday at 6pm. Definitely going to try this again, only I'll remember my guide next time.

Travel this trail clockwise. Maintenance has fallen off a bit, and trail erosion makes it a difficult descent the other way. Saw a rare N. American bare tushy running up the trail away from me, trying to pull it''s pants up.(hiker''s, please don''t pee in the trail, pee mud is gross!) Coming down the other side makes life worth while. Plenty of kelly-humps to launch off and trail changes often to keep it interesting. Don''t veer off on the "Scenic Trail" unless you want to ride around the lake, or ride a long ways back up hill.
