Overview

A quick, 4-mile loop that makes for a fun ride and a good workout.

Description

This trail lies in the woods around Hidden Pond Park. Built and maintained by CLIMB. A map can be found here: climbonline.org/pdf/climb_g…

Basically it's a singletrack with some respectable climbs. It's not very technical, with only a couple log features, but it makes up for that with the elevation gains and of course if you go up you get to come down to some nice banked turns.

Park near the tennis courts and head down the trail next to them towards the golf course bear right and continue north. Follow the Yellow/Blue Dot to the Yellow Blaze trail. This area is pretty flat but a little rooty in spots. Continue around the yellow back to yellow/blue and then head back south with the golf course on your right. Follow that up to the Blue Blaze Trail and start to climb. From there you'll go from Blue Blaze trail to the curvy Orange Blaze downhill, back on Blue Blaze for a bit, then Pink Blaze (more climbing) and finally, back on Blue Blaze to the beginning.

It can be confusing the first time but hopefully the above referenced map will help. Also, consider using the MTB Project mobile app for navigation.

Have fun!
