Description

This connector is rideable in both direction; become familiar with it and you'll be able to return to your car, home, or hotel directly. There are some steep, but short climbing sections that will be a challenge for some.

At one end, there is the parking area on Fountain Place Road. The other end is the Cul-de-sac on Columbine Trail (road). There is a junction to High Meadows and Powerline Trail that will take you back to the casinos.

Use this section to put a finish on Corral Trail #18E14 and Twisted Cedar Trail #18E14B as well as Cold Creek and even Mr. Toads. You can also drop back in on the other side of the Columbine Cul-de-sac and connect to all of the Hartoonian Trails. There are few areas of South Lake riding that do not benefit from Power Line access.
