Hold on tight – you’re in for a wild ride! This part of the Trail is full of steep elevation changes and hairpin turns. It has many curves here because it hugs the hilly terrain. The steel bridge provides a shortcut over the deep ravine so you don’t have to make the dangerous trek down to the forest floor. Remember to ring your bicycle bell as you zoom around the sharp corners!

Health Tips with Hearty Artie!

Drink plenty of fluids before, during and after your workout – even if you are not thirsty. Cold air has a drying effect which can increase the risk of dehydration, in turn, increasing the risk of frost bite.

Challenge Yourself!

Think about it…

How fast are you going when you ride down the hills? How does your speed change when you go uphill?

Why was this land not leveled to make the path flat?
