Named "Luge" for it's similarity to a luge track.
It's a single track trail that flows nicely with speed down the side of the creek valley.
Ends up at the bottom of which can take you on some nice double track trails through the quiet ravine forest, or back in to Lion's Park. Keep your head up for hikers/walkers potentially on the trail.
*The first (TOP) section of the trail can build up with ice from the field water run-off in the winter/spring, so be very careful if taking this downhill during this time of year.

      Trail is a bit slick due to recent rain. Trimmed back some of the larger/overgrown branches over hanging onto the trail.
