      City park trails. A mix of XC single and double dirt track, some wide gravel paths in Downes bowl/ Clearbrook park and a paved section of Discovery Trail connecting the Downes bowl to McLure areas. Somewhat popular for bikes in the 90's, now mostly used by hikers and offleash dog walkers so ride aware.
