Lovely singletrack connecting NW Leif Erikson Drive Trail to the Wildwood Trail through many maple trees

Hiking Project Staff

Features Fall Colors

Family Friendly Well-made gentle-inclined singletrack

Description

This trail is accessible from the Wildwood trail near the trailhead for the Keil Trail or from the NW Leif Erikson Drive Trail near its 10 mile mark. The trail ascends at a pleasant grade along smooth singletrack making it a fairly easy ascent. The trail passes through many maple trees so you can enjoy fall foliage. During the rest of the year this trail gets less traffic than nearby trails. Consider using it to make loops in this part of the park.
