The company that build this little stretch of trail was Myers construction. I was the super, the forman, the surveyor, and one of the equipment operators. we cleared the land, build the concrete, the parking lot, i was there from start to finish. First and foremost yes the trail is ADA approved, which was a straight challenge. When building this trail that was pretty much the biggest requirement, of course past the returning the park grounds back to a natural landscape. the reason for the trail to be built with way is for one major reason. that is so people with walking disabilities, who enjoy nature, still have the opportunity to have a place to enjoy. for me... i love this trail for one major reason, it is a perfect bombing hill on a longboard. if you skateboard and are looking for a hill to bomb... this one is perfect. turns just tight enough to give excitement, slope perfect, give her a try you wont be disappointed.

For those who wind up on the ADA approved paved trail and find themselves disappointed... look a little harder to find the singletrack. It’s the trail with orange paint markings. It crosses the paved trail once and the mulch trail once. The ADA trail is 0.73 miles long and the singletrack is 3.11 miles long crossing the powerline road twice.

Has a nice paved trail. Not good for single track running at all. Will not be back.

Fun trail loop that meanders through forest, rock gardens, some grassland, and several technical sections as well as a few short climbs. There’s a little bit of everything along this trail to hone your mountain biking or trails running skills. Start at the Gold Canyon Park trailhead and walk in until you hit the single-track. Then go left or right and with some luck (and probably your smart phone) you’ll make it back to the same location in 3.1 miles. You can also pick up the trail from the power line gravel road or from behind the nearby Redland
Woods Park.
