A very flowy and mossy, handbuilt trail that starts up near the Mt. Scio Lookout

Access Info

You may access the trail from the tower access path or from the concourse path. The trail starts directly off the gravel path on the right side, this is a very tight initial section. The trail then veers left after the clearing. It does eventually cross an access path to the powerline trail so be cautions and courteous of pedestrians.

This trail is unsanctioned, use at your own risk!

      Berm is graveled, can be ridden but will be a bit slippery until the dirt gets loaded on.

       Recently moved into larkhall street. I will be riding this a fair bit. I would like to help with construction of trail. Not sure who is currently doing the work.
