This is a cool trail that starts just north of the Village of Oak Creek. It's called the Hiline trail. Park in the Bell Rock parking lot and head west across Hwy 179 to pick up a trail called "Made in the Shade." Take that over to "Slim Shady" and that will lead you to Hiline. It starts out in a wash but heads uphill quickly. Put 'er in granny gear and start the switchbacks up. It's steep at first but will level out as it traverses the outside edge of a huge rock formation. The views toward Cathedral rock are awesome. You'll end up doing a little hike 'n bike as it heads down very steeply on the backside. This area is called the NOTCH and it will bust you into pieces if you're not wearing a full NFL uniform. Walk your bike here- it's really steep and gnarly. At the bottom it winds through a washy area and then over to the Baldwin trail. Take this clockwise over to the Templeton trail and an amazing cruise by Cathedral rock. Head back down to Slim Shady and finally Made in the Shade. You'll end up back at the Bell Rock parking lot and one helluva smile on your face!
