Canfield Mountain Trail 3, Trail A, and Cave Loop Reviews

These are all multi-use trails, meaning you will see people dirt biking, mountain biking, and hiking. Cave is a one way DOWN to the parking lot and dirt bikes and mtbs fly down this trail. So if you are hiking it make sure you stay alert and step off if you hear someone coming. Trail A is pretty flat and will take you over towards the concourse (mtb area) and hiking/mtb only trails.
