From Wild Horse Inn, take CR 83 to Hwy 40 and head into Fraser. At the Conoco Station in Fraser, turn right, proceed across the railroad tracks and immediately make a left to parallel the tracks. The road turns into CR 73, Saint Louis Creek Road. Follow this road to the sign for Saint Louis Creek Campground – make a left here and park in the obvious lot before you reach the actual campground.
The trailhead is on the south side of the parking area. The trail makes a short pass through the trees and meets a wide double track where you will turn left. Reach the river in about ½ mile and cross on the bridge, following signs to Chainsaw. At the top of the short steep hill turn right at the intersection for Flume Trail.
Climb up Flume Trail 2.8 miles where you meet a dirt road, FS 159. Turn left here and climb up the road. At the top you will see Zoom Trail on your left. Turn here and enjoy this downhill winding through the forest. At the intersection with Chainsaw Trail, turn left. (Watch your speed as you approach this intersection – it’s easy to fly by it!) Follow Chainsaw as it descends through the forest and past two ponds. Chainsaw continues past the intersection with Flume, down the hill, across the creek. Retrace your ride back to the parking area.
“An area classic. Good quality climbing, technical descending and zippy switchbacks. Rides equally great in either direction.”
