Need to Know
Bridges can be slick when wet. The trail is built on mostly clay, and takes a long time to dry out in the spring. Once dry, the trail sheds water nicely. The Upper Mac Connector heads through a swampy area and is often very wet. The trailhead can also be accessed by following the paved path to the top of the ridge.
The trails runs in both directions and is day-of-week dependent; there is a sign at the trailhead that identifies direction for that day. Once on the Upper Mac singletrack, you are all set. The entrance and exit to the trail are located at the same spot. There is a paved biking/walking path that cuts through the trail. Overall, this is an excellent ride if you're in the area. There is also an entrance/exit located at the far north end.
The singletrack offers lots of bench cut trail and a few bridges crossing small ravines. Once on the trail, there are only a few exit spots. Mid-way through you can opt for the paved path. You'll see the exit. Or you can exit at the for north end and take the paved path back to the start.
The paved path runs from Byron Road to Adams Street (~2 miles), and is a great family path that is extremely wide and easy to ride.
