Railroad Grade Trail traverses a comstock-era railroad grade adjacent to Trout Creek and is an essentially flat, straight trail. It provides excellent access into the Corral network of trails, but is also an excellent trail for beginner single track riders. Local residents frequent this trail for dog walks so please be courteous.

Access Info

One trailhead is off the end of the dead-end street called Columbine Trail and the other end is on the gravel road called Powerline Rd.

Adaptive Bike Info
