13.5 mile moderate downhill ride
This is a moderate 13.5 mile one way, mostly downhill ride near Holland Lake in the Swan River Valley with a variety of trail conditions. The ride starts with a downhill forest road run to Clearwater Lake trail-head. From here, after a slight grade up for 2.5 miles, the route turns onto a 3-mile grassy downhill single track section.
Then, a four-mile forest road downhill leads to Holland Lake where you can take the road or ride the trails through the campground to a very scenic lunch spot at the Holland Lake Lodge.
Consider adding the four-mile single track loop down to and around Clearwater Lake or the two mile hike to the falls at Holland Lake. Loops can be made by riding south on Highway 83 from Holland Lake and up West Morrell Rd. to the FR 4370 intersection.
