Timberline Explore Overview
A fresh mix up on the Timberline and West of Government Camp area, mixing up pine covered hard pack trails, dirt, gravel, broken top and even a few miles of smooth road. This ride is in a similar area as Burger Lodge Loop route which was ridden back in 2017
Taking Lower Bridal Path trail was great, a gentle up, pretty smooth in general and a pine needle covered hard dirt pack through the woods, mellow and a nice way to start. Having Timberline lodge in the middle for a cold ale stop on a hot day is a great idea.
