Evans Creek / Trail #196

Trail Information


Trail #196 is a connector to a couple of other trails within the Evans Creek System, but it has some very interesting aspects. It starts with a hill climb hidden from view; from the bottom, it looks intimidating as it has a bit of an off-camber side hill. This is one of those spots that will make you want to climb up into it on foot before you start to point your front tires uphill. Once up the hill, the trail is very easy and makes for a nice shortcut to the 197 trail; it also avoids the main obstacle of the 198 trail and links up with it half a mile down the road. In addition, it is a faster way to the more difficult portion of the 520 trail.
