Description

Bluff Line runs 2.6 miles from the north section of the Toll Gate Trail (very close to Land Trust parking lot off of Bankhead) to the Land Trust parking lot off of Monte Sano Boulevard. Along the way, the trail intersects with the Railroad Bed, Belue, Wagon, High Trail, and Waterline trails.

Things start off easy, and the trail is mostly singletrack with some doubletrack sections between Railroad Bed and Wagon trails. From there, the trail gets more challenging as it ascends over 400 feet before it then flattens out near its end at the Land Trust Parking Lot on Monte Sano Blvd.
