|Sleepy Hollow Trail
The Sleepy Hollow Trail is a non-motorized trail in the hills north of Strawberry Reservoir. The singletrack route is 3.2 miles; most riders will want to go the extra 0.8 mile up the ATV route to a fabulous viewpoint. The climb extends from an elevation of 8200 feet to almost 10,000 feet. The trail isn't very technical, but requires good legs. The upper ATV portion can be a little loose. The out-and-back is 8 miles total with 1800 vertical feet of climbing. Another ride option for Sleepy Hollow is a loop ride using the Co-op Creek singletrack trail. This route adds another 2.5 miles on ATV track and 1.5 miles on the Co-op Creek Road, plus 4.7 miles on the Co-op Creek Trail.
