The Stuart Peak Trail will take you all the way to the Rattlesnake Wilderness, which is the turn around point for mountain bikers since bikes are not allowed past this point. The climb is long and strenuous, but mountain bikers will enjoy the downhill on the way back. It's worth noting that this trail does not offer much scenery, but what it lacks in scenery, it definitely makes up with the fun factor.
