Need to Know

There are always lots of hikers and dogs, so be careful. Parking is on the street by any of the gates. Cherry Canyon is a fun practice spot or good place to go if you're short on time.

Description

The best single trail in the park, Canyon Trail starts at the five points intersection by the bench and drops into the tree covered canyon for a fast, flowy run. It starts with a couple switchbacks and quickly turns into a speed run with some banked walls and good dirt given the amount of tree coverage. The trail doesn't have the same rocky surface like most trails in the area, and there isn't anything technical. You can take it all the way down to the start of Cherry Canyon Motorway, or bail out 2/3 of the way down for a shorter climb back up to 5 points.

Bikers tend to only ride it downhill, but definitely be careful of hikers and dogs coming up. Highly recommend riding with a bell here given the amount of foot traffic.

If you start at the top of the park and add this on to the Cerro Negro Trail a it makes for a decent length run.
