This is a great multi trail loop that could be started from three different locations. As you come down from the Ridge Trail you have the option to connect to the famous Cascade Falls. The falls section is the only area bikes are no allowed. Bikers would have to exit the Ridge Trail and go down River Road. You can park at the playground, the Lost Lake Pond or at the swinging bridge. There are restrooms at all three parking location. There is only a Spot-A-Pot by the pond but you can get freshwater at the playground or at the swinging Bridge
