Left Hand Res Road

Trail Meter: 

This road (also known as FS104) can serve as a useful connector to singletrack trails in the Brainard Lake area, so BMA put it into our trails database. It's wide and not exceptionally techincal, but can be steep at times.  Typically, mountain bikers use this road in two contexts:

1) park at Brainard Lake Trailhead and use Left Hand Res Road to climb up to the Little Raven Trail

2) to connect between the Little Raven (East) and Little Raven trail segments.

#2 can be a little tricky ... let's say your on the Sourdough Trail and want to hit Little Raven.  You will first get onto Little Raven (East) which dumps you onto the Left Hand Res Road.  Turn left onto the road and continue climbing for about 1/2 mile, then start looking right for a USFS trail sign directing you back onto the Little Raven.
