A challenging ride offering some great views of uptown Saint John. A technical climb followed by riding along some rock faces that are thousands of years old. Once on top of the rocks it is easy to get off the trail as their are lots of short side trails that lead nowhere. SJC plans to mark this trail more naturally in Spring 2015 so it is easier to follow.
