Description

Green Canyon is a local favorite, and a popular hotspot for those looking for a ride close to town. The trail is a beginner singletrack that travels along the side of the canyon road, crossing at several points. The road leads to the top of the trail leaving the option for a shuttle.

The trail is very smooth, with a few rocky sections, and a gradual incline that makes it enjoyable for anyone. The way up has a few steep parts, but overall is a fairly easy climb. From the parking lot the singletrack starts off, but is not open to bikers until further up the road. Take the road for a couple hundred yards until you see the gate on the right, across the road from the cave/gravel hill.

Trees and foliage provide quite a bit of shade, and make for a beautiful scenic ride. Its plain to see where it got its name from when the trees and flowers start to bloom. At the top you reach a roundabout that has a gate with a continuing singletrack.

You have the option to keep going until the wilderness boundary, or to descend from there. The section past this gate has a small window in which it is rideable, as the grass tends to overgrow the trail and make for frustrating times and stinging shins. (PAST THE WILDERNESS BOUNDARY IS OFF LIMITS TO BIKES)

The descent is fast and fun. Burmed turns and smooth dirt make for a quick and easy return back to the parking lot. Watch for riders and hikers as this is a high-traffic trail.
