A fun trail with some single track sections, some rocky parts, water crossings and bridges. Watch out for hikers on blind curves. After heavy rain the bridges can wash out. January 2016 flood took out the large bridges but you can still get across the creek.

       Currently closed (but the Northside singletrack is open, and running pretty good). Both bridges are completely destroyed right now. The closure starts as the trail breaks from Mercy Road and follows the river.
