Description [Suggest Changes]

Hillside has the biggest climbs in the metro area. It wraps itself around the ridgelines of Ashworth Park. The trail flows well and has several optional "fingers" that allow for multiple routes.

Along the way, expect some roots and a couple of wooden bridges without railings. For a less-experienced rider, they are all easily walked around.

The trails are all bi-directional, but please yield to uphill traffic.
