While Boer Mountain is best known for its bike park-style trails that drop off the top of the mountain, this diverse trail system is also home to some fantastic beginner trails.
One of the best beginner pedals is this short loop circumnavigating Kager Lake. This easy 2-mile loop consists of a packed gravel path that will present no problem to even the newest mountain bikers.
One intriguing section features an extended boardwalk with two intertwining bridges.
One of the bridges is plenty wide for the new riders, and the other bridge is a bit narrower for a more exciting ride. Along the way around the lake, you'll enjoy stunning views of this hidden gem.
There are a couple of lookout decks that beckon you to pause and soak in the beautiful view.
At one point, you'll pass a dock that serves as a popular swimming spot. You'll also pass a slew of hike-in (or bike-in) campsites along the lakeshore that can't be accessed by car.
If you want to haul your gear in, you can enjoy an absolutely idyllic campsite with a fraction of the traffic found in the nearby car camping area.
Astonishingly, pit toilets have also been built out in the woods to serve these hike-in sites, which is very convenient. While the Kager Lake Loop might be short, it's a true gem that's worth checking out!
