Trail Details

Season: Summer, fall
Distance: 20.4 miles
Hazards: LOTS of blowdown

Schralper recommends doing the ride clockwise from Lemish Lake.

If you want to do a little shorter ride, the Lily Lake/Clover Meadow connector rolls well also.

If you park at Little Cultus Lake, it’s any easy spin up to Lemish Lake. You can then take dip in Little Cultus when you get back to the beer.

Also, if parked at Little Cultus, you can add in the Cultus Lake ride if you want more singletrack. Go to the north side of Little Cultus Lake and follow the trail that heads to Deer Lake and then Cultus. Out and back recommended here; don’t ride the gravel road. It sucks.
