Description

Cuddins Run Trail has a bit of everything. Wide gently graded trail, smooth singletrack, swooping turns, steep hills, and large roots. This is definitely one of the hardest trails in Preddy. There are some loose rocks on steep descents and corners that are deceptively tight.

If you're descending this trail, it starts off wide and very easy. Once the trail turns to singletrack, it hits you with some sweeping corners just before moving into a sharp right turn around a tree. After this there is a fairly straight but steep downhill with a right turn at the bottom of it. To finish this trail off you go back uphill through a section of large roots.

To climb this trail isn't anything technical, but it does make for a good workout.

There is a short connector trail that takes you straight to Preddy Creek Loop. It is steep but can be used to make a shorter version of the Preddy Creek Loop or it can be handy for linking up a fun route.
