Description

This road trail is perfect for the masochist looking to do some climbing intervals; it is a somewhat steep road climb that doesn't let up. It will take you to the top of the Lyon formation, with a quick ride to the fun downhill Lion trail, or to other trails in the south section of the park. As this is occasionally used as a service road, it isn't a great downhill for mountain biking, but it is generally well maintained and would be suitable for riding on a gravel bike.
