The beginning is circuitous, passing between rocks and bouncing over roots. This half-mile stretch (along Little Butte Creek) is the most technical part of the trail. Casual riders may find this too difficult, you can walk your bike through this part. There are some small hills through the remainder of the route, but beginners should have little difficulty with them. The outing is on single-track. This ride is a small gem; a great ride for intrepid families or scout troops. Ride begins near Fish Lake, about 30 miles northeast of Ashland, and approximately 40 miles west of Klamath Falls.

I rode this trail in combination with the High Lakes Trail. My 5 yo daughter was on a "trail-a-bike" behind me. We enjoyed the single trek of the Fish Lake trail, riding down to the dam. She had more fun with the bumps relative to the flat High Lakes trail. This trail is very flat and easy, but there are a few roots and rocks. However, most beginners should be able to develop some skills on this trail.
