“Smooth-rolling, hard-pack singletrack trail that borders the perimeter of Pleasant Ridge County Park”— Timothy Parrish
Electric Mountain Bikes Not Allowed
The trail begins at the first parking lot off to the right from the main park road. The trail starts across the paved road right next to the small creek. There are two wooden signs that mark the start of the trail.
The trail is mostly smooth-rolling, hard-packed singletrack. It is interspersed with a few rock gardens and contains a few tight off-camber switchbacks.
The trail begins with a slow, steady climb from the lower elevations of the park. It cuts through some tight new growth small-tree forest and gradually goes deeper into the park as the trail climbs the ridge. The highest point of the trail is about 2.5 miles in where the trail is very narrow in some areas and cuts through some very dense forest. In this area, there are a few nice large granite cliffs visible during the fall into the early spring before leaves obscure their view.
The trail then continues along the ridge behind Camp Spearhead, which is visible down to the left. The trail then ends with a slow, steady descent while passing through a fern grove over a short section of trail embedded with small logs. The trail ends abruptly at the main park road, which one must cross to get back to the parking lot.
