Description

Juniper Cliffside starts out in the Lighthouse Trail Parking lot, but can also be accessed by the Lighthouse overflow parking just around the corner on SP 5 alternate route. The trail starts with some short grinder climbs that give way to some rolling singletrack that is well worth the effort. There are a few sections that pop out next to the road, but don't worry there is more just stay on the trail and keep going.

This trail is all about give and take. You give on the short easy climbs, and you take on the nice flowy downs. If you catch it just right, this trail can be so buttery smooth, fast, and quite possibly one of the best that PDC has to offer.

It is not a directional trail and is Multi-Use so watch the blind corners and keep it under control. Most importantly, by all means ride this trail both directions.
