Description

As of Feb. 2015, new trails and signage are being added. Use the MTB Project MTB Project mobile app or print the most up to date map can be printed here.

Nathan's Trace is a southern extension of Eliza's Ridge Trail. It begins at Junction 38 and heads SW. The trail trends downhill as you pedal south with an interesting mix of rock outcrops (think slickrock) and prairie grass. You can ride further on rock outcrops if you take Mark's Reach. The northern junction of Nathan's Trace and Mark's Reach can be difficult to recognize. Mark's Reach continues up a bit of slickrock while Nathan's Trace angles left of the outcrop as a dirt trail. Use the MTB Project MTB Project mobile app for navigation.
