Part of the Blue Highway route. Centennial Trail has both hiking and biking trail heads, with signage showing the way. You can hike or bike either. The hike access, via the McGillivray Falls self-guiding trail stairs is a bit of labor to haul your bike up where the single track biking entrance climb, while steep, is easier to walk the bike up if needed. The trail is predominantly open rock face with long sight lines and relatively small elevation changes. There are easy lines to choose as well as more challenging drops, square edge up-and-overs, and even a chance for a little air here and there. Centennial delivers you to Blue Highway trail, which is made for MTB predominantly.

Access Info

Park at the McGillivray Falls parking lot and start your Blue Highway route experience there, or, park at the Caddy Lake parking lot about 1.2 kilometers East of McGillivray Falls. From there take the Caddy 44 connector and enjoy a wood wall ride and more awesome open rock face riding as 10 minute prelude to the Centennial - Blue Highway segments.
