Description

The trail actually starts at Pioneer Park and will soon meet up with the other via a super cool suspended bridge being built over Deer Creek. For the sake of convenience I parked at Uren St. and hwy. 49 where locals stage numerous rides from. The route is a combo of roads, dirt and gravel Roads, and buff singletrack.

Pop across the Hwy. and make a sharp left on Coyote St. then cut back over on High St. and head right and role down to Boulder St. make a left through the neighborhood and veer right on Nimrod and pick up the trail on the right just over the creek bridge. Nail this short trail and then head up the Historic downtown street of Broad St. swing a left on bridge, cross over Spring St. and head down the left street that goes around the Miners Foundry. When you pick up Factory St. you'll start seeing trail signs for the Tribute trail. Keep your eyes peeled and follow the signs down a great trail.

Keep an eye on left for the trail that switchbacks down to the creek for some extra credit and a bit of techy. At the end of the NID ditch trail you can turn around or loop around on streets back to your car...

Following the signs, I ended up on a narrow switch back. Not sure where all this flat, semi-straight trail is.... 4mi — 1h 00m

Rode out to the road, past The Willo, and rode trail backwards. Fun ride, nothing technical. Cool suspension bridge.

Great trail. It's a bit confusing the first time, as there are many side trails to get lost on. Stay on the main road until you get to the creek. 4mi
