Need to Know

There are several cool features that can be seen from this trail, including a series of rock walls from when the area was inhabited and farmed.

Description

Start at the MTB trailhead, cross the hiking/ski trail and then turn left at the split near the Mounds Park Rd/Pleasure Valley Trail. The trail is peppered with rocks and roots, ephemeral stream crossings, and eventually leads you to a machine-built section or trail called Chert Dip, which dips down the mound and back up.

The trail then heads mostly west, leading to 5 corners, an intersection of singletrack and two hiking/ski trails.

From here, take a minute to rest, as the next section is known as Serpentine Climb, and like the name suggests is both twisty and uphill. Finally, you'll come to the sign indicating the start of Holy Schist, stay left and continue on the trail to where it ends at the hiking/ski trail, with signs indicating the direction (right) back to the trailhead.
