Barts Dark Forest trail was reworked in 2017 by the RMOW Trail Crew. This flowy blue trail connects Emeral Forest, River Runs Through It North and South and eventually Rainbow Park. This multi-use trail has a few black options and wood features to keep it fun and interesting that can be ridden in either direction but best North to South.

Access Info

Accessed a number of ways: From Westside Road, or from A River Runs Through It (North), or cross the street after riding Rebob northbound or Get Over It southbound.

      Trail running nice but as with any wood in the the 2 skinny at the start were like hitting oil if you weren’t not careful, the rest of the wood...

       Trail signage (and MTB Project) indicates this is part of A River Runs Through It. I’m not a local, so I don’t know why it’s named differently here, but it caused a little confusion for us as we got started.

       This is an old logging road that's been remodelled. RRTI uses this logging road as part of the trail

       A short, must-do trail.
