Length: 16 miles. Duration: 1 - 2 hours.
This route is for people who want more time hiking in the mountains but are doubtful about their ability to safely come back on the on mountain bike trail. It's also an option in the spring before the snow has melted on the Powerline Trail
This route is almost exactly the same as the route the van took to the trailhead so unless you want more time hiking in the mountains, it makes more sense to take the van both to and from the trailhead and rent a bike after you return downtown and take it on the Coastal Trail.
