Description

Trail 17 is one of the longer rolling ascents in the park. It begins at Trail 13, and you'll gradually climb up to High Gear. The route is generally an easy going climb, so those with high fitness who are still developing intermediate skills will enjoy this one. Keep an eye out though, there are a few short lung-buster sections along the way!

The trail is a beautiful, shaded route that winds through the woods.
