Description

The Watchman Trail was created after a foothills land purchase and funding from SWIMBA. It's steep near the beginning and end and then the remaining parts of the trail traverse open slopes and drainages. There is a lot of exposure in a couple of sections that keep you motivated to stay on the trail. The trail flows well across its entire length and can be ridden in either direction depending on what kind of loop you want to put together.
