    Pedestrian Use

    Best practices in integrating pedestrian use into the bike park would include 1) giving pedestrian users suggested routes that will provide good/variety of experiences, 2) instilling a “yield to bikes” guideline by moving into a single file and stepping slightly off the inside/uphill side of the trail, and 3) combining 1 and 2, managing pedestrian use in the opposite direction of bike use when practicable.

     Pedestrian Suggested Routes

    Spell Bound Loop- Beginning on the lower leg, walking to an enhanced overlook (clear trees and provide 180-degree views), and coming back on the upper leg (generally against most bike traffic) provides a 15-30-minute walk. This would be an easy walk.

    North Star Loop (Counter Clockwise) ~4-mile loop, building off the Spell Bound direction of travel, that brings pedestrians down to and back out of the pit. This would be an moderately challenging experience. Expect a 30-minute run at expert pace and up to 1.5 hour hike.

    Fracture Falls Loop (Counter Clockwise, Spell Bound South-North Star-Glen Line-Fractured Falls- Glen Line-North Star-Spell Bound North) ~4 miles moderately challenging loop that brings visitors to the falls, up the narrow valley, past the geologically anomalous hematite formation, and back to the Discovery Center. This is a moderately challenging route that has significantly sleep slopes/exposure that make some users uncomfortable. Expect a 30-minute run at expert pace to a 1.5-hour hike.

    Red Hop Loop (Counter Clockwise, Spell Bound South-North Star-Glen Line-Bright Side North-Red Hop-North Star South) ~6-mile loop that provides expansive views of the mining pit and walls. This is a difficult hike/run due to its length and elevation loss/gain. Expect an hour run at expert pace to a 2.5+- hour hike at a moderate pace.
