Route Directions 

Shortest route at Tsali but probably the most fun. The route starts gradually climbing along the contours of the lake until heading away from the lake into the interior ridges. You continue to climb on old forest service roads until mile 6.2. From there is it all downhill on singletrack that includes berms in the corners for high speed descent.

Great ride, somewhat humid and muddy, but overall some fun down sections with more gradual climbs.
Great ride
4th ride of Spring Break. Got spoke fixed and was able to ride again. Started raining again, this time hard. Roots became major hazards.
The last ride of my last day of vacation. Seven straight days of riding and I am just tired. This was not a fast finish today. Tomorrow will be back to road biking.
This is the best ride in Tsali. It may not be the longest or most technical, but the last two miles are all groomed downhill singletrack. Keeping it below 20mph is difficult.
