Description

Part of the Lick Creek Trails originally built by motorcycles in the 1970s. With residential development of the area and increased popularity in off road cycling, these trails have been maintained for hiking, running, and riding.

This is a point to point trail of nice singletrack with some technical, short and steep, root strewn climbs. Nice views along lake. It's a connector between the parking area at old Route 4 bridge and the Inter-urban Pedestrian Path.
