Levis-Trow Mounds Recreational Area

Whether you circle Levis and Trow mounds or go over them, you're in for some terrific off-road riding and fine scenery. At one time the mounds were nunataks - islands rising above a sea of glacial ice. This spared the rugged sandstone crags that jut up from the rolling forest floor. Buff-colored outcroppings can be spotted from the easy trails. On the extreme single track you ride right under them in places. Getting there will take every bit of skill and ounce of strength you have. The side-hill single track is usually soft with many switch-backs. People race over them in the annual Buzzard Buster in late September. Keep track of how often you have to put a foot down, if you can count that high.Click on the Web address to view a trail map.
