Clark Kent is a mild mannered super hero that starts at Hartlen Park ballfield (on Lois Lane) and extends to Divide Trail.
Clark Kent is smooth, has banked turns in places, and has no big climbs. Use it as an entrance to the trail system, or just as a great experience for a new (and any) trail user.
Optional features include an A-frame and skinny line called Milk and Cookies trail.

Clark is a two-way trail and has a lot of users from the neighbourhood including kids and dog walkers. MTBers please remember to follow the usual yield rules and say hi

Access Info

Clark Kent starts at Hartlen Park at 25 Lois Lane. Clark can also be accessed from the ends of Theakston Drive and Drysdale Road.
