If you are looking to have a section of the Foothills Trail all to
yourself, your best bet is parking by the Wilkeson Fire Department and
hiking to Carbonado. The trail is unpaved and secluded. The trail is in
good shape and easily handled on a mountain bike. This section of the
trail is three miles.
Wilkeson Trestle to Paintball Trestle
Starting at Wilkeson, follow an unpaved section of the trail northwest toward Burnett. From the Wilkeson Trestle follow the trail to a trestle on the edge of paintball park. Beyond the trestle is private property. When you reach the far trestle, it's time to hike back to Wilkeson. This section is 2.5 miles long.
