Overview1:00 average time for 3.0 miles. Details
DescriptionUse High Meadow Rd to reach the start of this singletrack. It starts at the top of this path in a beautiful mountain meadow. The trail is on the left shortly after crossing a small creek (Cold Creek). This is a very picturesque scene and i suggest you stop to take in the view. The trail then follows the creek down the valley.
The beginning of this path is nice and easy flowy singletrack through the trees, but quickly becomes more difficult. The top sections are expert, and in some cases require a capable trail or downhill bike and rider. As a XC rider or intermediate rider, multiple upper sections will require some walking.
The trail mellows out about 1/3 way down and its flowy singletrack spotted with some large rocks/medium sized drops and banked corners. Great intermediate riding. A couple of small jumps also spot this section of trail. Halfway down is a cut over to High Meadow Rd, don't go here or you'll miss out on a great section of trail.
The trail splits at the bottom to Power Line trail to the right and left back to High Meadow Road.
Watch out for walkers or riders coming up. There can be lots of people with dogs, so be aware.
This trail can also be ridden up and is a little more enjoyable but longer than taking High Meadow Road.
