This trail is 3.5 miles long and is a mixture of tight twisty and moderately fast singletrack. It is sometimes referred to as the "dragon" because the gps track resembles the winged creature. The trail is considered intermediate because of the tight up and down sections but does not have any difficult climbs. Cartier Park also has a paved multi-use trail, campground, dog park and access to Lincoln Lake.

Access Info

The trail is easily accessed from the parking area at the corner of Tinkham and Rath Ave. It can also be accessed from the corner of Rath and Virnetta as part of the urban singletrack system.
