With the loop finished, I went up with Larry to give it a ride. We rode the trail both directions for a total of 13 miles. What is cool about this trail is the options! It rides very different depending on what direction you choose. The terrain is very varied as you wind your way around the lake. But most interesting is all the stunts, features and short side trails along the way that tug at your sense of adventure.
Now if you are of the downhill, freeride mind then this trail will seem rather tame. If you head down South or over to the coast there is tons of stuff like this on a much, much grander scale. Noted. We are not Whistler or the Northshore. BUT, for North Idaho where we don't have a lot of trails with features like this, it is a great asset to our list of rides.
