Family Friendly: A swoopy and fun trail for one and all.
The East Branch of the PRT represents a more swoopy, cross-country feel of the Peterson Ridge Trail System. There is a great log ride hiding on the east branch, along with great rock outcroppings and scenic viewpoints.
The trail leaves straight from town and is a net ascent as it trends south and then west. There are many "ladder rung" trails that connect this trail to its western half, the PRT West
. Each cutoff is a potential bailout or loop creator. If you want to ride the Peterson Ridge Trail in its entirety, check out the Peterson Ridge Trail Outer Loop
for more details.
