Summary:
Awesome Trail. Has everything from rollers, to sharp turns, good climbs, and some technical. Cliffside is about a three mile trial but ties into riverside and capitol peek. If you can tie the trails together you can have a really sweet ride that spans anything from about 6 miles to about 20 miles.

Recommended Route:
Start in the Light House trial head and head out on Roho Grande to Sunflower, to Riverside, then go stright into Cliffside to Capitol Peek over to Light House then to GSL and catch the Fox Loop then back on GSL and head back on Pasco Del Rio to the Lighthouse trailhead. Its an awesome loop and offers about everything you can ride in the Canyon. Distance around 18 miles.

Summary:
Scenic and spacious though it can get heavy pedestrian traffic on the summer weekends. Bring plenty of water and a camera so that you can get a beautiful picture.

Recommended Route:
This trail is not challenging so much as it is scenic. There is a group of trails just north of this one that are very difficult and demanding. Take your first main right off the lighthouse rock trial and you will find plenty of advanced trails. Even the most skilled cyclist will have to dismount these bad boys.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Be sure to get a map at the gate to explore all the wonderful trails this place has to offer.
