The north side of the reservoir trail is mostly single track and double track. This is best ridden from the entrance near the skills park. A great trail for newer mountain bikers, riding after rain or night riding. During daylight hours expect to meet hikers and walkers as this is multi-use and offers good scenery. There are benches in a few areas if you wish to rest and take in the scenery.

Access Info

Park in the parking area at the top of Wood Street and follow the pavement until you see the blue water tower. or Park in the Barnhill extension parking area off Young street and follow the gravel road past the water treatment plant to the trail head near the blue water tower.
