The Rocky Dell Trail is one of the original trails installed when the park was built in the 1940's. It is fairly flat and a good place for beginner riders. It has a lot of rocks, but is not very technical.
The Rocky Dell Trail can be combined with the Koto Buki Connector Trail
and the last 1/3 of Denny's Trail
to make a nice beginner ride loop (see the North Park Beginner Pool Loop
To access this trail, ride towards the Koto Buki Connector Trail
from Pie Traynor Field. Make a right, cross the fire road, continue up the short hill and turn left into the woods. Pass the Skills Park on the left and eventually the trail ends at South Ridge Drive.
You can park by the Mccandless Shelter across the street from the North Park Pool Pumphouse and start on the Koto Buki Connector Trail
. To connect Rocky Dell Trail to the last 1/3 of Denny's Trail
, turn left onto South Ridge Drive at the end of Rocky Dell. Ride 500 ft before turning left onto the next connector trail off of the road blazed white with red dot. Follow this connector and you'll end up on Denny's Trail
. Continue to white with blue dot and come out into the Pie Traynor Field parking lot.
