Description

Hidden Valley Trails system is primarily maintained for Nordic skiing in the winter. This figure-eight loop primarily covers the Bambas Loop and Sommers Loop, with some short distances completed on the Deer Trail. All trails are very wide, mowed grass with some distinguished tracks in a well-shaded route.

There is no technical terrain to ride over, making this family friendly, save some short climbs. Expect a gradual and sustained climb toward the end of the ride on Bambas Loop with a winding, fast descent to finish.

There are over 15 miles of trails in this area though, so please save and add your own rides to enhance the trail options!
