Trail shared by Cal Till

A nice flow of singletrack that's fast but offers a few challenging sections

Features -none-

Helmets must be worn by cyclists and dogs must be on leashes.

Overview

The trail is generally ridden in a counter clockwise direction but is equally as fun ridden clockwise (just watch out for oncoming traffic).

Need to Know

The trail system has become more popular for hikers and dog walkers so pay attention to your surroundings as you're riding.

Description

This trail system is pretty simple to follow - it's very well-marked, and as a green trail, there isn't much to worry about along the way. Just cruise along as fast as you're comfortable and enjoy it!

To start a lap, you'll enter the trail on the right side of the pavilion and turn right up the short steep hill, from there, just follow the trail markings. There's a little bit of everything to keep the beginner and seasoned cyclists entertained.

History & Background

This trail was built in 1999 by a group of local cycling volunteers. The Children's Home has done a spectacular job of supporting our local cycling community by allowing us access to their property.

Get ready for lots of buffed, fast sections where you can really let it rip.

Up on the ridge above the river, the climbing and switchbacks are the best part of the trail.
