This trail is another of the north/south running trails in the Moonraker network. A smart choice for novice riders, it offers some smooth riding with a mild gradient. In addition, it is a good trail for climbing back up to reach the Cedar Lake Trailhead because of its somewhat gentler climb than Arrowhead or North Star. Better than Boston is a smooth and winding ride to mix up your usual Moonraker loops.

Better than Boston rides well in both directions. It is particularly useful after a long ride when you are looking for a gradual climb north towards Cedar Lake Trailhead.

Access Info

Either midway along Arrowhead or off the southern end of North Star.
