The very beginning of the South Shore trail system. The trail is mostly a descent into Whitmore Ravine with multiple options along the way. Taking the fork to the left is the most technical, while taking the fork to the right twice will be the most flowy. Once at Whitmore Ravine you climb up red rock hill and have your choice of trails.

Access Info

From River Dr, turn onto Giant Springs Rd. Continue heading northeast on Giant Springs Rd and go under the RR tracks bridge. Drive up the hill and park in the second parking lot on your left (Lewis and Clark Scenic Overlook.) Jump on the bike and just after the post the sign and singletrack will be on your left.
