Cleveland National Forest Mountain Bike Trail Map
The terrain here is decidedly rugged with elevation ranging from 2,000 to 4,000 feet and vegetation consisting largely of chaparral and oak woodlands. The views are often awesome, particularly as you climb toward the Main Divide.
While most riding is geared towards advanced intermediate/expert riders, for less adventurous mountain bikers shorter loop possibilities do exist, though beginners will need to be content with out-and-backs along the main trails. Hard-core riders can use the map to create their own epic adventures.
