Family Friendly A wide trail with several trailheads allows for families to ride as much or as little as they desire.

Description

This portion of the Central Hardwoods Scenic Trail consists of compacted stone. The portion nearest the English Hill Trailhead consists of a series of small hills that provide variation in scenery. As the trail nears the Trace, the trail flattens out for easier riding.

Before intersecting with the Trace, the trail intersects with the North/South Trail. Signage makes the route clear. Shortly before arriving at the Golden Pond Visitor Center, riders must cross the Trace. While motorists should stop for bikers, caution is recommended since some traffic may be fast.

Many people set out on this trail and ride a portion of it before retracing their route and returning to their vehicle. Whatever you're looking for, this is a great trail.
