Big Timber offers nice viewpoints and fast, flowy riding. The trails is rated 'blue' but does have a few technical sections so it should probably be considered a tough ride for its rating. That said, it's a fairly short ride with no technical climbing.

Access Info

The trail starts near the top of the exclusive Kadenwood subdivision (accessed via Bayshores). Right up the many switchbacks until you pass Heritage Peaks Trail (a cul-de-sac) and look for a sign on your left for 'Big Timber Park' (if you hit High Point Dr you've gone too far). Follow the trail up some stairs to a beautiful lookout. From the lookout its pretty much all downhill, eventually you will exit about 100 meters above Dusty's in Creekside where cold beer awaits.
