“This route goes follows the boundary of the park.”— John Miller
The pump-track like Donkey Kong trail that is included in the route is easy to skip if you're looking to shorten the ride. Keep climbing up The Mud Flats singletrack. Eventually, you'll come to a pipeline and the singletrack runs parallel to this. Then the trail descends into the creek on the High Road and up the other side on Toby. Cross over the Service Road doubletrack to keep climbing.
After a series of switchbacks on Outer Limits, you'll begin to descend. This trail is technical. Rocks, roots and mud are abundant but local builders are working to create features that make the trail drier. When you reach the bottom, turn left and ride out on Upper Creek Trail into the clearing. Many other trails begin and end here; it's the heart of Jones Park.
If you look around you can find the old chimney. Turning left after entering the Service Road doubletrack will take you back towards the parking lot. You'll come to a fork in the doubletrack and you want to take the right one. Enjoy the smooth, fast descent into the parking lot. But watch out for the gate and hikers!
