This trail is very technical and would not recommend it for beginners. It starts out with a long technical climb(you will be walking a little). After that thers is nice singletrach that will take you out to the power lines. after you get past the power lines the trail starts getting much more diffcult. There are alot of drpos (from 1 to 6 feet) and there are a nice few lader rampes too( very technical). After about 3/4 houe of that you of that you come back to the power line. Past the power line it is all down hill all the way to the end of the trail, it's almost like a down hill cours. this is my favorit trail in st.john's, it get better every year. If you come to Newfoundland you have to ride this trali.

This trail is located in the southwest end of st.john's. I is right next to Richmond Hill estates. Before you go there you should get a trail map because it is really easy to get lost( you can get a map at one of the local shops).

Summary:
This trail kicks ass!!!it has lots of sweet dowm hills and some hard up hills.On some of the up hills you might have to walk. It's very easy to get lost up there so you should go with someone who know the trail first. this trail also has a nice few of ramps too.You'll have too keep an eye out for them because there easy to miss.this trail is not only for advanced rider because it has some thing for all types of riders but for the people starting off you might have to walk a bit because this trail get pretty tought at times.

Recommended Route:
this trail is not across form the harbor where many people think it is it's close to Richmond hill eastates.It's on the fire roads on the way up about 100m in.

Other recommended trails in the same area:

Reviewed by: Greg Cashin , from St. John's, Newfoundland, Canada

Summary:
Not a long trail - only about 6 km, but lots of uphill and downhill and it's super technical. Great ramps, bridges, and drop-offs. Really rocky, twisty, lots of ups and downs. St. John's' signature trail.

Recommended Route:
The trail's also known as Richmond Hill. Enter on the gravel access road off Huntingdale Drive, above the Kilbride Irving station. Go up the gravel hill on the right and keep going uphill. There's a bunch of different routes - you can pick up a trail guide at most of the local bike shops or find someone who knows the area.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
White Hills, Freshwater Bay hiking trail, Kenmount Hill, Pippy Park.
