“A trail skirting along the ridge of Mount Medaris.”— adam cornely
Assuming you climbed Pubview, take a right on the Medaris Ridge and begin traveling to the east. The trail is generally intermediate, but there are several rocky sections along the way that will challenge intermediate hikers. There is one steep downhill section, where cyclists are often seen. Though those on foot have the right of way, be prepared and courteous to your fellow trail users.
The Medaris Ridge is a popular multi-use trail in New Castle, so being polite to others (especially in this steep section) is crucial in avoiding conflicts with other user groups.
Straight ahead at this point is East Medaris, a trail that is open to foot traffic only which makes for a great experience. Please obey all regulations while hiking on Mount Medaris.
