Great ride if you are looking to go fast. The double track section runs around Moss Lake, and is quite easy. Some sections on the far side of Moss lake have a slight incline with loose rocks, but overall very manageable. If you get to the spur trail out to Sis & Bub take it. It's a fun stretch of single track. Not a lot of elevation change, but some fun rocks and roots to go fast over. This section is more technical than the loop around Moss Lake. The spur trail eventually gets to the vista trail which is insanely difficult. I would not advise doing it unless you have a lot of mountain biking experience. Once you get to a good section on the spur trail turn around and go back to Moss for roughly a 5 mile cruise.

P.S
There was a down tree on the spur trail where I turned around. 9/16/17.

Started by taking the trail to the beach at Moss lake and looped around back to the trailhead then went (back) right at the trailhead and walked to the trail leading to Bubb and Sis lakes and on to the trailhead on Rt. 28 attempted to do the Vista Trail as well but once to a certain point could not go any further with a 2 year old in tow-not very well kept then went on back to finish the Moss Lake loop and go back to our car. Rated at 3 because the trail is not highly trafficked and is extremely muddy in parts with little to no path around also there is no guide for Bubb and Sis lake trail or Vista Trail so you pretty much have to own your own map and hope it's there or wing it.

There's a short trail that takes you right to the water. Also saw some cool camp sites. Dog friendly!

Quick easy hike. Fun to do with the dogs on skis or during the summer. Easy Mt bike ride. Head down to bub and sis to make the loop a little longer.

Very gentle, flat walk around the lake. Have fun exploring the old camps. Read the history, especially the Indian uprising/standoff from the 1970s.

Easy, flat, walk through the woods. In actuality, the hike affords few views of the lake as it remains obscured or entirely hidden by the trees. Plenty secluded, you can't hear any road noise throughout most of the trail.
