FRUMPS - Lake Wilderness - Green River Gorge Loop
If you are new, please read our newcomer information.
This beautiful loop ride from Lake Wilderness to the Green River Gorge is one of my favorite routes. We start with a descent to the Cedar River then ride through the forest, under a bridge, up a hill, through a neighborhood to riverside Dorre Don. There is a short section (0.3 miles) of packed gravel on the Cedar River Trail followed by a short climb on pavement (200 yards) to cruise through quiet neighborhoods. The first rest stop is at S'wiched for an early Lunch at about 11:30 am (mile 13). After lunch, we head south through the forest to Cumberland and descend to the Green River Gorge for a photo op. There is a natural spring where you can fill your water bottle for 2 cents. The gradual 3-mile climb up to Black Diamond brings us to our second rest stop (mile 35) at Lake Sawyer Regional Park Trailhead. We should be back to Lake Wilderness about 3:30 pm.
Start: Meet in the Lake Wilderness Lodge parking lot at 9:45 am for the pre-ride safety briefing and route review. Departure is at 10:00 am. There is a restroom in the park at the start.
Regroup: We will climb and descend hills at our own pace, regrouping at the tops and bottoms.
What to Bring: 1) Money for lunch at S'wiched - See menu link below - Face mask is required; 2) A spare tube and tools to fix a flat; 3) Two full water bottles; 4) A cell phone in case you cannot finish the ride.
