Description

The trail starts with well groomed singletrack winding along the river and returns to the start along a ridge trail with some slight rolling hills. The turns are well-marked with yellow arrows. There are a few dead end side trails that appear to connect to private land.

Parking is available at the end of Melrose Rd. The remains of the former bridge crossing can be seen from the parking area.
