This wide, easy trail offers a fun ride through the forest as it parallels the gravel section of the Valley Trail. There are a couple of optional blue features along the way for newer riders to practice on. The trail can be ridden in either direction, but is easier when ridden from east to west as it trends downhill in that direction. Family Man Lower is shared with walkers so please keep an eye out and give everyone plenty of room to enjoy the trail.

The name is a shoutout to Mike Rauch, the ultimate family man, who donated his time, skills, and excavator to help SPRTA build this trail.
