Description

Starting from the Main Line, it does a mellow descent along the tree line then drops down at the end of the tree line. Then winds around until a culvert/bridge. This will take you up on the dike, where you weave through some trees. This will bring you to a switchback down the dike, then you'll run along the dike then eventually go back up the dike.

The trail will drop back down alongside the dike, then come back on the dike but this time you'll come to a bench then straight in front of the bench is the bald eagle's nest.

Following all this are some small rolling sections used by mountain bikers. Most of the trail bike features are here: first, they have a boardwalk and then a bike jump. Then you wind your way back up onto the dike to where it curves around by the river edge before meeting up with the Inner Loop Trail.

This is where you can exit Hillside Trail and go back down to the Mainline trail, or you can start the Esse's Trail.

The Eagle Rock Shredders have been working hard to open these trails back up by adding several small bridges to get over constantly wet areas!
