Hatch Run Conservation Demo Area

Description: Start from the trail head and head through the gate and up the double track. Take the
first right and follow the fire road up through the clear-cut to a rock wall crossing. The single track
starts here! Follow along the contour for a short distance and then make the short, steep climb
straight up. Once up the steep section the climb mellows and continues up to a trail on the left. The
decent begins! Follow the trail down the ridge, across it and into the switchbackdrop to the field.
Hang a right at the edge for a short climb and then follow the flowing swoop down to the grass road.
After turning right onto that grass road continue straight across the next intersection, down the field
edge and into the bottom. Follow the trail across the creek and try to mind the wet areas. Take a left
at the big bridge (careful, it's always slippery) and follow the trail back out to the trailhead.
Distance: 3.1 miles Climbing: 525 ft Sensitivity: Moderate, avoid riding in wet conditions.

Morrison Trails

Description: Morrison is a remote trail system with a few different options for rides. There's
the entire outside loop, two smaller loops and also a ski-trail portion that can all be ridden. It's a rocky,
steep, log-riddled place that simply isn't for the faint of heart or the inexperienced rider. Rides can keep
you generally up top with out and backs or send you on an all day epic loop from the parking lot to the
lake shore and back.
Distance: Variable Climbing: Up to 750 ft
Sensitivity: None, however avoid riding in wet conditions due to rocks, roots and log crossings
