This is a great trail for any age and ability. The trail is easy to ride with very little elevation gain. You can choose to take more difficult or easier routes. It is well marked and very well maintained. Excellent for both wet and dry conditions.

Access Info

Drive along the Forbidden Plateau road until you reach Nymph falls, take the next left just after the Nymph falls parking lot. It is unmarked but very well used with lots of parking area.

This trail is Unsanctioned, Ride at your own Risk!
