Description

Located off the Bike and Hike trail for easy access, this trail is the first phase of the new East Rim Trail System.

The trail changes direction daily, so observe the signs posted at the trailhead. Although this trail is a little short, it is still a lot of fun.

If you're looking for a longer ride, you can connect to the Bedford Singletrack using the Bike and Hike Trail.
