Metal Circus is a mostly downhill trail starting at the top of the rail bridge and ending at the East Don trail. It begins with a small bridge over a gully, then there's a log-roll that takes you under the bridge, then the trail follows beside the bridge to the bottom of the hill.

Access Info

If you ride Over the Rainbow out and back as a loop, it will connect you to the start of Metal Circus.
