I was taken to Dash Point by a regular. Trail was well maintained and had a good veriety of up hills, down hills, and rolly polly twist and turns. Lots to look at and various difficulty levels between easy and a medium challenge.

Recommended Route:
IMBA and Log Jammer.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
BPA, It's a road bike trail but kinda has a mountin bike alternative.

Summary:
Went & rode Dash Pointe for the second time today Tues. 2/22/05. Spent about an 1.5 hr. on it today. I really like this trail, good up-hill & downhill sections, plus new signs. Techincal/ slow parts, makes you think. Find something new everytime I go out. Hey, plus there were some hot female/ friendly X-C runners out on the trails. I would recommend this trial to everyone, except maybe the D-Hillers, they'd probably get bored.
NumbSkull Like X-C runners.

Recommended Route:
Start at the campsite, head East/South, look for the signs, they are self explanatory; "The Downhill."

Summary:
I have been organizing the trail work parties in this park, and coordinating with the park rangers. They are being very supportive.

We have organized 2 bicycle groups, Boy scout troops, church groups, and a group of runners to work on the trail and as a result they are in great shape. This informal group of trail uses is call Friends Of Dashpoint State Park.

Come on and try out our newest trail "log Jam". Also known as HFT (Hard F'n Trail)
It's a challenging one!

Email me at Friendsofdashpoint@msn.com if you want a map.

Also let me know if you are interested in helping out with new trails, or maintenance on existing trails.

Enjoy the ride! Patrick Robinson

Summary:
I have been riding here since 1986 and I use it mainly for exercise (I live near by), it is a good trail with good short downhill sections and some pretty good climbs that do get your heart going, muddy in winter, semi technical, if you ride at a quick pace 2 full loops of this park will take about two hours and you will be tired or there are several trails that branch off of the main trails and you barely have to ride the same stuff twice and still get in a few hours of good riding great for begginers and experts alike another thing is I have ridden there for 17 years and have never had a run in with the rangers ( maybey I am just in the right place at the right time ) watch out for runners walkers may-sept, have a good one!!

Recommended Route:
everything but the lowest portion of the park
