Good singletrack ride that is not too challenging. Very little technical riding between the greenway and John Bruce st., but between John Bruce st. and the bridge on the other side there is some quicker sections, with some smaller punchier climbs. Families can ride this, but it is also a great trail to practice going fast on, just beware that it is multi-use so keep your heads up.

Note: On the second half of the trail when you enter between the housing, there will be some trail entrances on your right. The first couple leads to some small dirt jumps, which are separate from the trail.

Access Info

Access off of the Bishop Grandin greenway just east of St. Anne's. On the east side of the Seine river you will see a path that leads off into the woods. That is the first half of the trail and you will come out at the end of a street. Continue straight on from there and look to your right and you will see a gravel path, follow that and look for trails on your right. The first entrance to the trail will take you on a steep left and up a quick climb - keep following this trail.

This trail does not do well when there is spring flooding, or if there has been a lot of rain. It needs time to dry a reasonable amount.

Bone dry. Full speed, lots of pedestrians though given the conditions.
