Trail shared by Tom Robson

A nice run from south to north with views through the trees and brutal switchbacks.

Description

This trail can start at the north park/picnic area or you can climb Howard Trail to the start behind Arthur's Rock like this map shows. Heading south to north is the way to do it.

Timber Trail is great - it has it all! The trail boasts well-built switchbacks, large rocks and roots to work around, as well as some easy-rolling singletrack.
