Trail shared by Nathan McKerley

Short, exciting singletrack weaving through nestled Twin Hills Park.

Overview

This collection of trails makes for a great lunch hike or a forest outing on some short but exciting singletrack.

Description

Enter at the end of Twin Hills Drive and follow the trail through a small, grassy clearing. Keep to the right to stay along the top of the eastern slope. The woods vary, occasionally giving way to a canopy of bushes. After this flat stretch, the trail turns west, weaving downhill.

At an intersection, take a right across a small creek and up into a clearing in the park. The trail temporarily dumps into the Carriage Park Apartments before re-entering the woods. This section begins to gradually descend in a more shaded section toward the park boundary, before turning east and rapidly descends into the valley between the two hills, over a creek, and up the other side.

At the next three intersections, keep to the edge of the ravine as it parallels the stream below. At the top of this section turn right and follow the flatter singletrack back to the start.
