Powerline Trail

This trail runs under the power lines from the Toll Gate Creek Trail near Horseshoe Park to Jewell and Dunkirk. From here you can ride the sidewalk along Jewell to the Conservatory Trail that will take you south to Quincy. This trail has a climb that might be a challenge to newcomers but shouldn't be a problem for those with any experience at all. (Of course you can ride this the other way and your climb is on Conservatory) There are signaled crossings at Buckley, at Tower, and you must cross both east and south at Jewell and Dunkirk.

Nice Trail

I love to bike this trail. Good time to think and ponder and listen to some tunes.
