Family Friendly This is a very beginner/kid-friendly trail.

Description

The trail runs around the edge of the Cathedral Pines subdivision. Some areas are in the trees, but a lot more of it is open after the Black Forest fire. This trail features some nice flowing roller-coaster rides on the north side. The trail skirts the edge of some homes/lots. Either direction (CW or CCW) results in a nice downhill with gradual climbs back out.

This is a nice beginner route. It is quite possible to fly around this loop, but is is essential to watch your speed because of the many other users (pedestrians, runners, baby-joggers) on this trail. Sep 20, 2016
