Amity West Trail is can be ridden in either direction and is often combined with the Amity East Trail to create a full circuit. It can also be combined with the Amity Connector and the Lester River Trail for a bigger loop.

Riding downhill (south):

The trail leaves Seven Bridges Road with an immediate, punchy, rocky climb. Don't worry, though: it's pretty much all downhill after this!

As the trail continues, the first several minutes will have you climbing, descending, and switch-backing over small valleys and ridges. There are a number of boardwalks in this section as you pass over many very small creeks and streams.

As the descent gets a little steeper you'll enter the pines, where the smooth flowing trail gradually roller-coasters you down. After the pines, the trail begins to turn back on itself, requiring a little more climbing effort to keep the momentum going. Eventually, several tight switch-backs spit you onto Seven Bridges Road.
