Description

Access the trail from the southern end of the main Cuyuna parking lot just off of the paved bike path when heading west. Lots of fun, easy singletrack winds past some viewpoints overlooking Huntington Mine Lake. You'll ride short sections of the paved path where the paved path gets close to the lake.

Once on the north side of the lake and back in the trail system, Easy Street will turn north and follow a new re-route of what was once called Little Sidewinder. It is simple and curvy.

The east access links with Switchback and Crusher while the link to far end connects with Boot Camp. In between, most of the trail is rolling, easy contour on hillside above Huntington Mine Lake. The corridor is fairly wide and accommodates two-way traffic.

Throughout the route there are various short optional segments off of Galloping Goose These are usually 50-100 feet and length and usually take advantage of some rocks or boulders to test your technical skills.
