The Canal Trail is a great way to get up or back from the Strand Hill area. It’s more singletrack and less road, so hop on it to get up to the Bonus and climb up to descend Strand, or zip onto it on your way back from Farris Creek or Strawberry (#402).

3.5 miles out Brush Creek Road from its intersection with Hwy 135, Farris Creek Road climbs up a hill to the right. (Farris Creek Road is 1/2 mile past the Slate River crossing and large barn by the road.) Continue On Brush Creek Road 1/2 mile just past a cattleguard to a singletrack on the right. Ride through the meadow, across the canal and start up the Canal Trail, which is signed at the top of the hill after the canal crossing.
