Project Description: 

At 3.5 miles, Trail 299 is the old Highway 40 tread.  Between 15 and 20 feet wide and never exceeding a 7% grade, this old road surface provides the ultimate beginner mountain bike trail as well as access for emergency/construction vehicles.  The trail's wide nature easily allows for two way bicycle traffic and even leaves room for small, beginner features on the trails edge.  The whole family can enjoy this trail as grandma rides next to her grand kids who play on features and jumps while she enjoys a smooth, wide and easy ride.
