I love this trail.


I suspect that may be the one we already cut but I'll check tomorrow - thanks for letting us know. Everything else good otherwise?


This was on Thursday and going counter clockwise from the trailhead a little before the Matzinger road crossing. The trail was great. I just wish I had more time to spend out there that day.

I also noticed the new trail that is being cut. Got to ride a bit of that. Will that ever connect up with the main trail?


Good question on the new trail - that is our novice loop (will be a 3 mile loop, right now is 1.5 miles out). It will connect to the main trail; in fact, it will be the south exit from the parking lot as we need to close the section that currently drops down the west slope to the parking and has become completely eroded - probably see this happen next year.

Has anyone ridden this lately? I was going to swing by tomorrow morning (before any potential storms, hopefully) and check it out.

No cell signal and a sign that says car break ins have been reported here don't really motivate you... The trail seems more for hiking but still a fun flowy trail.

I rode the trail on Sept 11th. Trail was in fine shape but there were a couple of trees down. I don't know the trail well enough to know what 'section' they were in, but they seemed to be at the eastern end of the big loop.

Best for hiking? Strangest comment I've ever heard about this trail.

Finally made it up here to ride. The trails were leaf covered but otherwise the trail was in great shape. It was an absolute blast to ride this trail. I didn't want to stop. The flow in either direction was amazing. Arcadia knocked Glacial Hills off as my favorite trail.

Is Arcadia close to being rideable yet?

Yes! The south facing side is good to go but the north facing side needs this week's rain. Connecting gravel with the south side of the big loop as well as the newer beginner loop makes for a good spring ride. Be a good steward and clear off the derailleur destroyers
