    We picked up this trail from East Lake Resort by climbing 2 miles up a gravel road...a good climb to get loosened up. The single track began through a somewhat thick pine forest on a fine gravely surface. The vegitation obscured any real views of the lakes below until about the 4 mile point where we were able to see a panoramic view of both East and Paulina Lakes from atop a cinder-covered slope above the west edge of East lake. This view was magnificent and worth stopping for. At this point the climb was pretty much over. We hit the descent portion of the trail and were able to let it rip but watch for soft spots as they tend to sneek up on you here. The descent was a rather steep 2.5 mile good time ending at the west edge of paulina lake. Overall this was an enjoyable ride...I would do it again.
