Description

Riverview Trail starts at Beechwood Blvd. opposite Nicholson St., adjacent to Blue Slide Park and loops below the off leash dog shelter.

You can access Roller Coaster and many of the other fire roads from here via the Riverview Extension Trail and Firelane Trail Extension. Use caution on the wooden bridges on this trail, they are extremely slippery when wet.

There is a short-very interesting section that is clearly entirely landfill from past construction projects, reminiscent of the yellow brick road.

South end of Horse Trough Trail has no signage, but starts just above the Lower Riverview sign, next to the two trees bathing in the sun.

Dense undergrowth through this section requires regular maintenance.

The exit of the trail is a quick turn uphill which can be overgrown with hercules club (thorny stalks which grow into trees) if not maintained regularly.

This is the split about 50 feet down from the entrance near Blue Slide Playground. Horse Trough begins on the left. Photo taken standing on lower Bench, which proceeds out to the right where the sign stands.
