Description

The Steele Trail is the major backbone of the Smith Preserve. This singletrack brings you into the Smith Preserve and provides access to all the other trails.

Starting from the parking lot, you're in for a bit of a climb at the start. The first mile is a great warm up, and you'll be ready for the rest of the trails in the park after that. The trail surface on this one is fairly friendly, but there are multiple bridge crossings to navigate.
