Family Friendly: A great intro to singletrack
Dogs: Off-leash

Description

If you are starting from the Power Line Road (south end), look for an opening in the split rail fence right at the base of the steep section under the power lines. The first section is rather straight following the old railroad bed. Then the trail veers off and rolls through the trees around some corners and gets pretty fun for an easy ride. The last half-mile has 2 tiny wood drainage crossings that are a little narrow for novice riders. Nothing sketchy, just slightly challenging for some little ones. The toughest part is a 20' rise up onto Columbine Street.

Great series of easy trails either as a warm up for something larger, or for beginners. Jul 26, 2017
Took my wife and daughter for their first time mountain biking. We had a great time just enough difficulty to show them what is like but plenty of great scenery to make it fun Aug 19, 2017
