Summary:
A lot of new trail is completed from "lost and found" out towards rock bench and Goat Hill. The trails now go all the way from Dana Peak Park to Stillhouse Hollow Park. Unfortunately, someone has been removing some of the technical obstacles in a few places--I guess they want to remain mediocre riders :(. Overall, it is a good ride with some technical challenges.

Recommended Route:
From the dirt parking area on the sharp bend--up the hill, turn left on "fenceline" and take it all the way to "lost and found". As you get to lost and found, turn left--orange cone in the bush onto the new trail--just keep on going if you want the full ride to Stillhouse Hollow Park and back. On the return, turn slightly left towards twin peaks? Stay to the right on the way up and bear right at the top--you can follow the trail staying to the right all the way back to the parking lot.

Summary:
actually i ride this trail more than once a week it is the closes thing to a local loop that i have here. it is fast and fun and good for beginners with some tricky stuff in the back near stone bench for more experienced riders there is almost no real climbing but the fire road does burn on the way out. everyone please ride this trail it seems to be getting over grown.

Recommended Route:
at trail head take trail to right(not through the gate) keep going straight trail begins to go down then about1ftstep down right after that about 40 ft take trail to left do 3ft ramp jump and wind around to another 1ft ramp jump then out to the bottom of the fire road go left(up) the road near top look for sign on right go right and stay on double track, down and up you'll come to a brick fence corner go left and follow the fence until you come on a break in the fence go left you'll come to a 4way with a wooden box on a post go to the left and follw the flow there will be a couple for trails off to the right but they won't feel right then when the trail is close to the lake go left you'll start a nasty climb just when the climb starts to look depressing look right take that trail do the "hard stuff" all the way to stone bench then turn around and go back when you get to the sign go right at the top look left go up hill and back down go left and do the ramps again then all the way up road you home

Summary:
If this is the same trail as Dana Peak (which I can't find listed anywhere but it is on Still House Lake) I thought it was a pretty cool trail for anyone. It has some challenging climbs and some good aerobic spinning. It's easy to get to...in a State Park with plenty of camping and facilities. Why am I the only one who knows about it?

Summary:
Trail moves quickly. You can ride for MILES out there and never find your car again (just like I did). Great first timers trail. Some good climbs for the experieced rider.
