This trail is on Gowing Woods Condominium complex open space. It is not covered by the easement for the Bicentennial Trail, thus not sanctioned. It is the preferred climb route headed south, as Bicentennial has 2 very steep pitches on the Gowing Woods easement. The trail tops out at a cell tower. Take the tower road back to Bicentennial Trail. Avoid riding out to Dodge Road through Gowing Woods.

This trail is Unsanctioned, Ride at your own Risk!
