Overview

A mellow climb with a killer downhill.

Need to Know

Dogs can be off leash but must be under control. These trails get a lot of traffic.

Description

Start off at the small parking lot at the end of the road. Either park or ride from Avon town center.

Start off with a small climb that takes you up part of the Avon Singletree Connector (ASC). From here, get a little downhill warm-up via BLT Jump Line. Then take the connector west to Wyse Way for a more mellow climb to the top. You'll need to take PB&J to connect over at the top.

Now from the top, the pride and joy is Lee's Way Down for a fast and fun way back to hit BLT Jump Line again. Take the turns to the left to head back to the parking lot.

You can add a few more laps or take another trail to make a longer adventure. This is the more mellow climb up to the top with the best downhill in the network.
