Description

To access this trail, start at the River Trailhead, head up through the trees and get ready for a good time.This winding trail features moderate elevation gains, but the numerous bends and twists will provide ample views of the area in addition to keeping your run fresh and exciting.

Pond Hopper Trail will end at the river along some doubletrack; take the doubletrack west to get back to the campground if needed. Otherwise, take Pond Hopper back the way you came.

Completed by Singletrack Trails Inc. in 2016 and maintained by the Whiterock Conservancy, please do not run trails when wet.
