Description

This is an easy trail that is mostly doubletrack, with some pavement and some gravel and a little singletrack. It crosses through and near lots of city open space with nice views along the way. Overall, it's well-maintained and marked, and passable most of the year though there can be lots of foot traffic. Additionally, there are lots of spurs into the regional trail system, Westminster neighborhoods, and other city paths with numerous places to park along the trail.

See the Westminster web paget for more description, maps, and photos.
