Partially restored cabins at the Pieplant Townsite are the only structures along this route. The Lily Pond trip has more to see, including several large log cabin ruins, a unique natural spring and standing mining equipment at the sizeable Forest Hill Mine. Both routes have enough challenge to be a great deal of fun. These two routes have been combined because they are close together and are similar in difficulty. You can ride either trail separately. The Pieplant route is a loop and Lily Pond is an in-and-out situation. Lily Pond takes a bit longer, especially if you add the optional side trip at Waypoint 07. Both trails pass close to private property. Please stay out of these areas and obey all signs.
