       A nice climbing alternative to the Glenrose Cliffs trail heading west. Beautiful views and new trail surface.

       The climb from the parking lot to the glenrose trail is enough to remind you that your 20's were a long time ago. The views and decent are all worth it. The trail itself is flat singletrack with no obstacles. Great ride. Highly recommended.
