McDowell Mountain

A ride that will make you smile!  Not too difficult, not too easy.  Some road and some very wide single track in McDowell Mountain park. 95% of the single track is smooth and rolling.  Pure bliss on an adventure / gravel bike.  If you are new to gravel riding you may want to walk your bike a few hundred yards in the western section of Pemberton.  For more experienced riders, the rocks will be just a “blip”.
