Description

The Medaris Ridge can be ridden in both directions, but is generally enjoyed from west to east while using Pubview to access the western end of the trail. Access to the Medaris Ridge is via the Medaris Ditch trail and Salty Dalty.

Assuming you climbed Pubview, take a right on the Medaris Ridge and begin traveling to the east. The trail is generally intermediate, but there are several rock moves along the way that will challenge intermediate riders. There is one steep downhill section, where riders should slow down and yield to foot traffic.

The Medaris Ridge is a popular hiking trail in New Castle, so slowing down on this steep section is crucial in avoiding conflicts with other user groups. Once you arrive at the intersection of Pubview and Salty Dalty, either take Pubview back to the top to do another lap on Medaris Ridge and try to clean some of the rock moves that you missed before or take Salty Dalty back down Mount Medaris.

Straight ahead at this point is East Medaris, and is closed to bikes and open to foot traffic only. Please obey all regulations while riding on Mount Medaris.
