Description

Hillside has the biggest climbs in the metro area. It wraps itself around the ridgelines of Ashworth Park. The trail flows well and has several optional "fingers" that allow for multiple routes.

Along the way, expect some roots and a couple of wooden bridges without railings. For a less-experienced rider, they are all easily walked around.

The trails are all bi-directional, but please yield to uphill traffic.

Some mountain bike traffic, but overall nice area. Definitely has the most elevation change on trails I've been on in the area. 2.2mi
