Trailhead: coming from the west take Beaver rd past the Johnston soccer fields, there is an unmarked gravel road on the right shortly after that goes down a short hill to a parking lot, paved road to parking lot is about 100 ft. Trailhead is well marked from the parking lot on the eastern side.If you go over the bridge you have gone too far.
Flat-ish and fast this trail is a good time and a good workout without being too technical to slow things down. With solid riding and good cornering you can average 11mph through the whole trail pretty easy. The trail is pretty well maintained but it's not advisible to ride it the day after rain because of being so close to the river the ground stays wet longer and nobody wants the trail rutted out. Trail splits off into a small section with rollers that do not require you to get airborne. This is a small loop that brings you back to the regular trail(and is really fun). There are some trees to ride over or rocks, one manmade jump but everything is optional. This trail is rideable straight through without stopping. More than once if you have adequate cardio.
BE WARNED: this trail is used often by trail runners, hikers, and bikers in both directions. Have fun by be watchful for incoming people, especially bikes, where you both can be on top of eachother in the blink of an eye.
This trail is my regular trail because it is so fun to ride. Definitely recommended to everyone.
center trails (without a lot of the altitude change)
