A flowing machine-built singletrack ascending out of the Mission Creek valley.

Description

The character of this trail is consistent with the rest of the Mission Creek trail cluster; fast, flowing, bermed, machine-built singletrack with lots of low wooden bridges. There are no technical features, but there is a bit of elevation change, making this an 'intermediate' trail.

Trail is two-directional, so watch for oncoming riders.

Description from east to west, starting at the intersection with Mission Creek Pkwy. The eastern 1/2 of this trail (east of Ninja Beaver) is a sustained climb out of the Mission Creek valley. The track flows very nicely so a skilled rider will be able to maintain momentum in the switchbacks and pump they're way up the hill. The halfway point is roughly where the trail is intersected by Ninja Beaver.

The western 1/2 of the trail (west from Ninja Beaver) flattens out noticeably as you rip and flow under the canopy of beautiful mature forests. After a roller coaster of dizzying, bermed switchbacks you'll finally reach the western end, where this trail intersects Upper Cathedral.

Ojibwe trail name: "Ningaabii’anong Gaag Aazhawa’adoo" (meaning: she goes across the trail)
