Important Information

- The Timber Trail’s predominantly wide and smooth surface classifies much of it as grade 2 (easy). Some decent climbs and trickier sections push it to grade 3 (intermediate) and make the whole ride best suited to reasonably fit, experienced cyclists.
- Adventure itinerary and price are subject to change.
