Description

While rated more difficult, it is close to being an "easier” trail. This trail’s grade and construction makes a good choice for adventurous novice mountain bikers. Instead of a continuous uphill or downhill, the trail rolls while gaining 400’ when traveling west to east over its 3 miles. Hikers will find it easier. Crosstown Trail parallels Government Camp above and north of this village so locals use it as a way to get from one end of "town” to the other. On the eastern end, the trail goes through mostly Lodgepole Pine forest and on its western end, stands of Douglas Fir, Western Red Cedar, and Hemlock trees become more common. Crosstown Tr links several other trails making it a key route in the area.

Regulations & Leave No Trace Information: Crosstown Trail has the brush and trees cleared wider than most summer trails. This wide clearing improves its winter use. It may be tempting to widen the trail surface itself by walking side by side or by passing other mountain bikers by going through vegetation. Please keep resist this. The cumulative impact of this can eventually lead to a trail that feels more like a road.

Mountain bikers – when you come up on other trail users from behind, slow down and let them know you would like to pass. All users - when you reach Summit Ski area, travel only on the marked single track in summer months.

In winter there are unique etiquette considerations. Skiers, snowshoers and hikers are asked to respect the "tracks” that each user group has pioneered in the snow. For example, if a skier has been on the trail first, the snowshoer or hiker that comes next should pioneer their own track in.
