Overview
There are more than a dozen interconnected trails with countless options to increase or decrease trail length, climbs and downhills. If you're in the area, this is the place to go for a quick after work ride. The 9 Mile ride is just one of your possible options.

The area is very popular for hikers and horses and is hot in summer. Most of the hikers stay to North Legacy Way, South Legacy Way and the Hidden Falls Access Trail. Fire-roads have a loose gravel cover and some of the singletrack has been damaged with horse traffic but you have plenty of options to choose from.
Need To Know
There are a couple of nice scenic viewpoints at the start/end of the trail.
Description
Starting from the Sky Ridge Loop, ride up to the ridge line then down to Grey Pine Trail and South Legacy Way. Continue from fire road to descend to the creek, then follow along the creek on a mix of road and singletrack.

Turn right on Great Egret Trail and continue on this until you hit a short connector (the Gold Finch Trail) that puts you back on South Legacy Way across a bridge to Grey Squirrel Trail which starts with a short climb to some nice flat singletrack.

Head uphill along singletrack to Deer Trail. Head up this fire road for 1/2 mile until it connects to another fire road heading downhill (River Otter Loop). A short trip leads to North Legacy Way and you'll cross a bridge with a great view of the river and some swimming areas (scenic overlook here).

Immediately after crossing the bridge, take a right onto Hidden Falls Access Trail, a very rocky, narrow technical trail will tie back into North Legacy Way. Crossing another bridge will bring you back to South Legacy Way and an uphill climb back to the parking area.

Virtually all trails are clearly marked. See for yourself, there are only another 100 possible ways to run this trail system!
