Found at the upper end of the Mtn Shadows Trail system, Cliffside offers some technical riding, some whoops, and a full view of the Columbia Valley. Although rated a black diamond, there are only a few challenging techy bits and one whoops.

The trail rides well in either direction. It is fairly well signed, but due to the number of trials bike trails in the area, it can be a little confusing (particularly in the north to south direction). When riding north to south, try to keep high and not take any branches dropping down to the right. If you do this properly then you should reach the junction with Magic Dragon. The trail requires a little more endurance when ridden north to south.
