Description

This route starts at the trailhead for the new Mica Conservation Area parking lot at the end of Belmont Rd. The trail is a combination of old logging roads in various stages of returning to singletrack that span across WA Departement of Natural Resources Property and Inland Empire Paper Property.

Immediately out of the parking lot, continue straight up the road up California Creek drainage. It's best to follow the GPS as there are many different old roads forking away from the trail as you climb up.

Near the top of the climb, there are three much steeper, short climbs in a row before leveling out onto rolling trail. The trail passes a pond/spring in the middle of the trail. Pass this on the extreme right.

Near the top, there are great views looking north across the valley at the adjacent ridge and also views of the Spokane Valley. Use care as you begin your descent.

As you start down into a saddle, there is a hard right off the main trail to stay on this trail. As you descend, watch again approximately a half mile to a mile further for another sweeping right. Use your GPS, and you'll have no problem.
