An intermediate trail above the wastewater treatment plant. The trail flows along the river valley with several relaxed climbs as well as couple of short but steep sections. There are about 6 sections which cross other right of ways or cross country ski paths. Bridges directly into Pipe Dream going eastbound. Trail flows better from west to east.

Access Info

South side of Gold Bark Park road across from dumpster, about 200m in.

       Fun new trail, thanks to whoever put the work into cutting it in. There's a couple of really grueling climbs and fun berms, and it goes pretty long. I think after it's been ridden for a while, this will be a good one to return to

       Most of the challenge for this trail currently is in the looseness of the dirt; I'm not sure why it's rated black. It's a really well-designed and laid out series of trails and I commend the builders! I rode it both directions and there are some fun downhill sections and a couple cool kickers, and even loose it's super rideable.

       That stupid fence detour on the west end is gone. I guess they finally gave up. Maybe they realized there was no way that grass was going to grow at the trailheads.
