Description

After 200m of pedaling there is a hard left-hand switch to continue the family trail. You could continue straight on a small connector back to Plum Creek Road and Notch Trail which allows some good opportunity to bail if you have weaker riders or small kids and still ride a nice descent to the parking lot.

After making the left turn, the trail gets a little steeper in spots but is mostly an easy haul. Half the way up there is another intersection with the Direct Route so keep a look out for other trail users crossing your path. Another few hundred meters you make the final right hand turn and scuttle up the remaining singletrack. The trail will spit you out on the Plum Creek Road directly in front of a map kiosk and the intersection of several other trails for your enjoyment.
