“A great beginners trail through meadows that climbs gradually to an awesome downhill section.”
— C Broome
Beginner trail makes this an easy trail for kids who want to learn mountain biking with only a few technical sections. My 8-year-old walks the technical sections but enjoys biking the meadows.
This trail starts off the south corner of the Mantua Reservoir Trail dike. Once the singletrack begins, the trail gradually climbs along the benches with a few slightly technical sections. After climbing to the high-point and the intersection with the Ridge Trail Branch, the trail has a phenomenal downhill through the scattered trees to reconnect with itself. The loop can easily be done multiple times for a longer ride or riders can descend back to the Mantua Reservoir Trail dike road to finish.
