Description

Southwest District Park is a short loop that is intended to be ridden in the CCW direction. The start of the trail is to the right of the trail kiosk on the left side of the parking area. There is a wooden bridge that spans a creek that has an optional creek crossing on the left shortly after you enter. After about 1/4 of a mile the trail splits. Take the right branch to ride in the counter-clockwise direction, although this trail is decent in both directions.

There are a few log overs and one challenging log skinny but other than that it is mostly a beginner friendly trail. The counter-clockwise direction has two flowing downhill sections and the clockwise direction has one good downhill section near the end. The terrain is similar to BYT / Marion Diehl but with less elevation change. This trail is fairly new and does not see much traffic, it could be a pretty great ride with some added berms and trail work.
