Description

This loop serves up a classic XC-style mountain bike ride in the greater Silver Lake area.

Begin with a long jeep road climb to access the top of the ridge and the beginning of the Hidden Lake Trail.

This trail drops quickly off the ridge, through some moderately-challenging rocks, all the way down toward Silver Lake.

Near Silver Lake, you have the option to add on a little extra out-and-back if you haven't had enough yet.

Or, you can cut the loop slightly shorter if you're eager to get back to the car. Sources: http://www.carsonpass.com/activities/mountain_biking.html
