Trail 4 is one of many trails in the Canfield Mountain Trail System. The trail is known to the locals as, "Cave Trail." **CAUTION** This is a ONE-WAY Trail. Downhill ONLY.

This Trail dives off from Trail A near the top and directs you quickly down some of the best downhill in the Canfield Trail System. This trail gets a lot of maintenance and is usually in great shape. It is predominantly made up of hard-park with some gravely sections near the bottom. The trail can get a little dusty during periods of heavy use and the dryer conditions near the end of summer.

There are a lot of humps and jumps on this one with some fast rolling, high berms to rifle you down to the parking lot. There are also a couple of creek crossing along the way to enjoy. You can even stop along the trail and spend some down by the creek if you desire.

Coming down this was a pleasant surprise! The climb up was worth the work to experience the flowy hops on the way down! Going back soon! 5mi — 1h 30m
