Short trail that is the first trail for many new riders. Has a mixture of features that make a good introduction to north shore riding, such a board walk and some rooty sections. Can be ridden in both directions, but keep an eye out for new riders, dog walkers, and kids on push bikes if riding up. Once you are comfortable with Roadside, Bobsled is a popular next trail to progress to. King of the Shore is also a good trail to progress to, but will force the beginning rider to either turn around and ride back up, or exit on McNair drive and ride up the road.

       Is nobody going to ignore the fact that the photo at the top of this page is very clearly NOT roadside attraction? Lol
