No bikes allowed on East Medaris and West Medaris.

Description

The Medaris Ridge can be taken in both directions, but is generally enjoyed from west to east while using Pubview to access the western end of the trail. Access to the Medaris Ridge is via Medaris Ditch and Salty Dalty.

Assuming you climbed Pubview, take a right on the Medaris Ridge and begin traveling to the east. The trail is generally intermediate, but there are several rocky sections along the way that will challenge intermediate runners. There is one steep downhill section, where cyclists are often seen. Though those on foot have the right of way, be prepared and courteous to your fellow trail users.

The Medaris Ridge is a popular multi-use trail in New Castle, so being polite to others (especially in this steep section) is crucial in avoiding conflicts with other user groups.

Straight ahead at this point is East Medaris, a trail that is open to foot traffic only which makes for a great experience. Please obey all regulations while running on Mount Medaris.
