Head back along Road C-6000
and look for the left-hand entrance to Level Up Trail
. This trail is fairly wide singletrack without many obstacles. It's a great spot for beginner riders to gain comfort and confidence. An option for mixed-level groups or families is to head up Level Up Trail
together and the more experienced riders continue on this loop while the rest of the group can turn around and retrace the trail back.
A handful of switchbacks through a logged area mark the more earnest climb towards a crossing of Road C-6000
. Look for a log ride after the crossing. Continue east up the backside of Little Larch as the trail kicks it up in grade and root obstacles.
The kiosk just after joining the Little Larch Trail
is a good place to stop for a drink, secure any layers, and drop your seat as the majority of what's to come is descending.
The Little Larch Trail
has lots of fun flow with numerous options to take more difficult lines with taller drops. There are also dozens of jumps and a pump course-like section along the flatter bottom of the southern half of the trail. The trail rejoins Road C-6000
a hundred feet south of the entrance. Head up for another loop or follow Road C-6000
back to the parking area.
