Pedal through the Mountain Turns

Trinity County offers the pleasures of road riding on lightly traveled roads.

One example is to park in Lewiston and loop out around on Trinity Dam Boulevard to Highway 3 and back to Lewiston via Rush Creek Road. Here you get to take in views of both lakes, Trinity   and Lewiston as well as the dam in between.

Road racers also get their chance to explore Trinity County.
