Description

From the gravel lot at River Park, cross the bridge, and run south along the river, passing a steep trail on the left to a switchback/junction. Climb left, passing an unsigned junction with the North Loop (6030) on the left. From this point up, the trail steepens until it reaches the railroad grade. The trail is not long, but the grade will get your hear rate up.
