Bells Mountain is a nice little Out and Back cross country ride through working forest with some decent elevation gain and a couple of miles of nice, flowy singletrack. It’s a nice way to get some serious climbing in after work. Definitely a great option for hardtails, rigids, and singlespeed enthusiasts. There’s always one last hill to climb on this trail.

For the beginner or those in less than stellar shape, you will hike your bike when climbing from Moulton Falls trailhead. That said, it's all worth it!
