“A nice training ride that never ventures too far from the parking lot.”— David Gustafson
After a little bit, look for the singletrack coming back across the grassy doubletrack. You'll see a brown sign saying that this is Hillside park, hiking/biking. This is your trail. Other than a mechanical, or bad weather, you should have no reason to take the shortcut. This trail is too fun to cut anything out. It has a lot of quick ups and downs. With no real sustained climbing, this trail isn't terribly physically demanding, that is unless you push the pace yourself.
I enjoyed the rolling singletrack meandering through the forests, crossing logs, and rocks. The one spot that really impressed me was a switchback climb where they had built out the corner, using logs as retaining walls, so that you could change directions on the hill without completely stalling. It was subtle, but it just shows how much went into this trail. They have also done a great job building up large logs to be completely rideable, many of which are used as skinny's.
With its close proximity to the Metro, and its high quality mountain biking, I am guessing that this trail will develop quite a name for itself.
