Cliffhanger winds its way across the hillside adjacent to the Lake Fairfax Cricket Field. This trail is narrow with quick grade reversals and a few tight corners. Both the north and south ends connect to Rails to River. The south end serves as a reroute for SW Cricketfield, so please use this new trail instead of the old trail that heads straight down the hill.
