Like many of the non Leif Erikson Drive rides in Forest Park, Firelane 10 is an exercise in steep ascents and descents.

Overview

Forest Park has very specific bike-legal trails. Be sure to stay on the bike-legal trails.
Dogs: Leashed

Description

Starting from the Leif Erikson parking lot on Germantown Road, pedal up the road past the gate for Firelane 9 (not bike-legal) and head for the gate for Firelane 1. It is a couple hundred feet further up the hill.

Right from the get-go, the fire road drops into a steep downhill for almost half a mile. It's the kind of steepness that'll elicit a groan, knowing the return climb will be a doozy.

At about the half-mile mark, a stream flows through a culvert under the road. This marks the beginning of the climbing portion. It's just about as long and as steep as what you just came down.

A little ways up, before an especially steep segment, a bypass trail will veer off to the left. It's advised to take this spur, as it is much less steep and only a little longer than the "normal" route.

Eventually, it levels out, and before long, Firelane 1 terminates in the Newton Road parking lot.
