Grassy Meadow Trail is well worth the effort to get to it. It is singletrack running thru very pretty forest with one creek crossing and a small meadow.
Mountain bikers will love the flow of this trail. It is pure sweet singletrack sure to put a smile on anyone's face. Very little in the way of technical challenges and very the rating is mainly due to the trails getting it it. Advanced beginners will find a couple of spots near the creek crossing they may want to walk.

       Really fun trail. Only reason it isnt way more popular is because it's kind of out there by itself. If you wanna just explore Dupont, ride all the way out to the top of Joanna and ride down and hit this
