Grout Bay Loop: Park in Fawnskin or Grout Bay Parking area on Highway 38. From Fawnskin, ride 3 miles up fireroad 3N14 to the Hanna Flats Campground. Go straight toward the back of the campground and find a singletrack trail between 2 campsites marked by 2 red painted rocks next to the road and a plastic trail marker. The trail goes uphill and curves to the right around a hill behind the campsites. Its about 4 miles of rolling singletrack through the forest over rocks, ruts, roots, and usually dry creeks. The trail crosses a fireroad many times but is well marked. (When in doubt stay left and look for trail markers!) The Hanna Flats trail ends at a fireroad - you will see a sign stating that its 4 miles back to Hanna Flats Campground - take a left and stay left on this fireroad for 1/4 mile and you will pass the trail up to Gray's Peak on the right. (Note: you can add about 4 miles (2 each way) of nice singletrack climbing and a super fun descending by taking this out and back trail up to Gray's Peak) Keep staying left on fireroad and you pick up the singletrack trail to Gray's Peak Trailhead parking lot and Grout Bay Picnic Area on Highway 38. Go left on highway 38 to return to Fawnskin.
Mazimize singletrack by parking at the Gray's Peak Trailhead, ride up the trail, stay right on fireroad, ride to Hanna Flats, get water at campground, eat, turn around ride the fun singletrack back to the Gray's Peak trail, ride up to Gray's Peak, try to see the lake through the trees, enjoy 3 mile singletrack descent to your car at the Gray's Peak Trailhead.
