If we pick up the NCT at Timber Creek trail head, do you guys think it would be open and a good ride heading north?
I have never been on this section of trail and would love some advice. We are staying at Wolf Lake and would not want to drive any further then we need to in order to. The group will be a mix of riders and I would not want to turn any of the new guys off to the sport. Is this area ok to give mnt biking a try?
It is an excellent section to ride. It is open all year so wear bright colors this time of year. Park at the US 10 entrance (Timber Creek Campground) and ride north until you are ready to turn back. The trail does climb gradually the first 1.5-2 miles, which may turn a beginner off, but it is very gradual and well worth the effort. After that the trail is rolling with fun ups and downs. On the return trip some of the up hills are long but again pretty gradual. This section is not as hilly or advanced(off cambered) as the Red Bridge section.
