      Top Bridge was built by the Arrowsmith Mountain Bike Club and, at one point, offered eight intermediate loops. Trails have low usage ever since a new road was built down to a new pumping stn. Expect poor riding conditions.
      The "B Trail" is a dual slalom course with jumps and steeper sections, this is the trail that has the most use. Park located next to a rifle range so expect occasional action.

      Hook up with the 5km/3mi Top Bridge Trail at the Rathtrevor Beach end of Resort Drive, then follow the route under Highway 19, and onwards to the bike park. From there, cross the suspension bridge and connect to the RDN Regional Park trails that access the fish hatchery, continue to the end of Englishman River Rd and further to Englishman River Falls Provincial Park and the HammerFest Trail Network.

      There is also several great swimming spots on the river on a hot summers day.
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
