“A great ~6 mile trail that tracks along North Park's northern ridge.”

Getting There     GPX File     Print
5.8 Miles Singletrack Type 571’ Ascent -553’ Descent 1,012’ Low 1,238’ High
Description
From the double parking lot ride up North Ridge Drive for ~50 yards. The trail will start on your right. The trail winds up the initial ~.25 mile climb before beginning the long flowing ride. The trail is continually marked with red-blue blazes, but does not cross any other trails which makes it easy to unplug and cruise through. Their are multiple opt-out locations in case you get tired or run short on time. All opt outs put you on North Ridge Drive, which you can take northward and end up back at the double lot.

At ~mile 6 you'll cross the southern end of North Ridge Drive. Congratulations, you have made it to the end. If you still have the energy, turn around and retrace your steps; you'll find the Red-Blue trail is equally challenging and entertaining regardless of direction. If pressed for time, you can make a right and ride down to Pearce Mill Road, which can be taken North back to the double lot.
