Clear trails for the most part, but may run into occasional puddles or stretches of muddy areas. It is encouraged to go through puddles, and not around them. Also to turn back on long muddy stretches that damage or widen trails.

Urban Connection is a nice loop for hikers with a cool view of downtown. It’s not particularly popular with bikers because it’s pretty steep and short. That said, Urban Connection can be a good extension of a mountain bike ride on the Bob’s or Highlands trails.
