“A reasonably fun connector trail between north and south mountain trails.”— Zachary Wagner
The Link Trail is comprised of mostly doubletrack, with some singletrack sections, and it does have some steeper sections that can be difficult to negotiate, particularly if you climb to the Summit Trail from Mountain Rd. If you do this, you'll enjoy a relatively mellow start over moderate difficulty. But closer to the Summit Trail, expect things to get a little nasty. The pitch will steepen significantly, and there are some terrain features in the way of rocks and roots to keep you even more on your toes. You'll need your cardio pumping here at the end, but it's a doable feat.
If you're coming down, watch for some false trails coming in, as some intersections can be confusing. Watch to your left near the end of the trail for the blue reflectors on the trees that mark the trail down to Mountain Rd. Look directly across the road for another trail that heads into the northern mountain section of trails.
