Trail shared by John Peterson

Unexpected urban singletrack.

Description

Well built singletrack with long boardwalks, bridges, small climbs and descents and mostly smooth dirt trail surfaces. This is an amazing trail resource in a rather densely populated urban area. On many places along this trail, there is no evidence of the urban nature of the area. It's all trees, meadow and marsh. Although this is a multi-use trail, it rides very well.

Hilly sections are bench cut with flowy switchbacks. Wet sections have bridges and boardwalks. This trail links up a lot of different conservation areas and can be part of a epic urban adventure.
