extreme cardio. These trails offer just enough XC between the climbs and technical stuff. Very well kept secret. This is great training. I have been racing for years and always drive the 500 miles to ride here for a week. Awesome scenery. In late August expect to have the Park to yourself, well, atleast the trails.

Summary:
CCC-built hiking trails. Loose and steep, sharp switchbacks, fun diversion if you're in the area.

Recommended Route:
I'm going to try to clear up the route posted before since I had some difficulties figuring out what the reviewer meant, but after riding there it is much clearer.

Park at the turn-off for Brimmer Point (at the trail map board). Ride up the road to the trailhead for Newell Bay trail (on right). Take this to the Brimmer Point trail loop. Ride the loop before crossing the bridge and crossing the road to Davis Bay trail. This is very loose in places, like riding down a stream bed. Quite exciting. Take this all the way down to Davis Bay either via the stairs if you're into that, or take the next right to some more switchbacks. Across the campground you will see the Lakeview Trail. This becomes the MM trail (forgot what it stands for) and then the N. Bluff trail (forgot N). This is the Castle Cliffs section the previous reviewer talks about. Follow this past the castle and you will eventually hit double track. Follow this to the dirt road, turn right and ride until you see your car.

I was there on a beautiful Wednesday in August and I didn't see another person on the trails.

Summary:
I wore my teeth and gears on this trail. There used to be gruop of us who rode this everyweekend, I personally put 3000 miles on my hardtail over the years. It is technical in sections with beautiful views and breathtaking cliffs.

Recommended Route:
From someone who knows them well, ride from the parking area up the hill to the trailhead to the right Newton creek go down and around to the bridge next go the right and ride the 10 min loop, then over the bridge then across the road to the Davis downhill, look out for Norm Demonts ditch, then down to the Davis bay look out for campers at the bottom, then up the hill to Turkey Gulch trail then then go up to the right then go right to the Castle cliff sections...CAreful 300 to 400 ft drops 4ft from the edge of the trail...Straight down.. then you will head to the Castle then there is a Castle downhill ride that will take you to the lake then follow the road up the hill go to the right and back down the road. total 10 miles.. it used take 50 minute of ride time but 2 hrs of fartin around with buddies...1-2 foot drops lot of rocks and narrows...Low trees I miss it, i moved from the area.
