The Blueberry Lake trails were designated in 2013 as an International Mountain Bike Association Model Trail-Gateway network and are great for beginners.

Head to Tootsie Roll first for smooth surfaces and gentle grades. Next try Flying Squirrel for a fast and fun ride through the trees. Lenord’s Loop adds more challenge with more climbing and descending on bermed switchbacks and rollers. Suki’s Alley and Amenta’s Way are super flowy with rock features and optional jumps. Look for views of the lake from Tootsie Roll, the beautiful birch forest of Flying Squirrel, and a mountain lookout from Amenta’s Way. These trails are very popular for hiking and trail running too.

Trail Guidelines

  • Always ride, ski, run and walk in control. Bikers yield to all pedestrian users. Skiers yield to hikers and snowshoers. Climbing traffic has the right of way. Please stop in a safe visible spot off the trail.
  • Stay off trails when the ground is soft, especially in winter and spring. Avoid leaving deep footprints and ruts. Help with maintenance. Do not construct or maintain trails without National Forest review and permission.
  • Respect landowners, neighbors, and other visitors. 
  • Park in legal areas. 
  • Please keep pets leashed or under control at all times and clean up after them.
