Description

This trail takes you over rolling singletrack around North Park's Golf Course. It can be used to connect to the V8 Trail and the Bathtub Trail. The trail is rideable in either direction, however flow is better starting with the Front Nine.

The trail consists of the Front Nine and the Back Nine parts. The Front Nine was installed in the 1940's when the park was constructed and is also known as North Park's XC Ski Trail. The Back Nine starts just past church at Parish Hill. At this point the Front Nine goes straight out into the golf course (as one would do when skiing XC) and the Back Nine is a trail which dives off to the right 100 feet before the Front Nine terminates on the golf course. The Back Nine was installed by Rob Loeher in the early 2000's. The Back Nine continues along and is more singletrack in nature with climbs, descents and scenic sections through big trees. The Back Nine dumps you out onto Kummer Rd across from the Pigeon Shelter. At this point you can cross Kummer Rd to access the Bathtub Trail or climb Kummer Rd to get back to the Front nine via the Horse Show Trail.

This is an easy ride from the J.C. Stone Field parking lot or the Boathouse Parking Lot. You can ride up Walter Rd from either lot to access the trail at the junction of the Front and Back Nine behind the church on Parish Hill, or ride up the Beuaty Drive Trail along Kummer from JC Stone Parking lot to access the Front Nine from across Kummer from Beauty Drive.
