Slate Valley Trails--Fairgrounds East

About this Location

The Fairground trails are beginner to intermediate to hike and bike terrain. Very family-friendly. Several longer loops offer lots of climbing, but also a good mix of family-friendly and beginner-friendly green and blue trails. Vistas with benches offer scenic views. These trails are entirely on private property and are open to the public through the landowner’s generosity and their partnership with Slate Valley Trails.
