New Trails at Spence Mountain open Sat 6/1/19
This year’s trail building at Spence Mountain is now concluding and the trails are in great shape due to recent rains. There are about 7 miles of new trails this year thanks to the hard work of Dirt Mechanics:
1) Queen of the Lake (Black Diamond): This trail starts at the Spence Mountain TH and goes along the shore of Howard Bay toward the north. This trail is relatively flat, but is still difficult to ride because of the rocks and short steep pitches along this steep stretch of real estate. The views from this trail are very nice (don’t take your eyes off the trail if riding).
2) Winema (Blue Square): This trail extends down the mountain toward the lake from Modoc to meet up with Queen of the Lake, providing another connection from the south side of the ridge to the north side This is a fairly rowdy trail and is predominantly meant to be ridden downhill. There is an adjacent road for climbing (will be improved next year).
3) North Star (Green Circle): An green trail that will make an nice loop in the central portion of Spence with the existing Modoc Tr and a short section of Winema that is also green.
The KTA works with a wide range of public and private groups and landowners to acquire trail right-of-way, build and maintain trails, and promote enjoyment of these natural resources!
