54 MILE FOREST ROUTE (Green Loop Map) From Trout Lake climb 14.5 miles, (2,000′ gain), including a short 10% incline and then a long ride down with waterfalls, creeks, eagles and all the majesty this special country provides. From there 10 mile climb up to Big Tire Junction and then on to a downhill you will never forget, back to Trout Lake, (3,800′ gain). Post-ride meal and T-shirt included.

** NOTE for 2019: We recommend most cyclist ride the Forest Route as two out-and-back sections totaling 58 miles, as the prior winter road damage will not be repaired until after June 2019. This split route offers more options for shorter or longer distances. As of June 2019, there are two large washouts on FS 88 that are completely impassable by bicycle.

Check-In/Registration Time: 8:00am to 10:00am

This ride is fully supported with sagwagons, emergency teams, radio coverage, snacks/rest stops, and dinner. Post-ride meal and T-shirt included.
