Description

This trail is an easy ride for folks just passing through town or as a warm-up for longer mountain rides. This is an especially good trail for beginners and younger riders. The trail is never far from town but gives a taste of the many trail possibilities of Austin mountain biking.

The trail proceeds past Stokes Castle on a winding, graded road. Several mines and prospects are found in the juniper covered hillsides. The trail veers left to climb gradually into Marshall Canyon. At the head of the canyon, the trail heads north, back toward Austin Park. The downhill is fast, and the last section is steep and should be taken with caution.
