|Princess Di Trail - From Promontory on paved Three Mile Canyon Trail,
with return via Rail Trail
The Princess Di trail is a singletrack trail that hugs the hillside east of Promontory. The track is narrow, with some areas of loose volcanic rock that create tricky traction on the many tight switchback turns. This makes the trail "expert" in technical requirement, although intermediates can ride it with a few dismounts. Princess Di itself is 7.5 miles in length, with the total loop ride being 14.5 miles. The 7 miles you'll spend on the paved Three Mile Canyon and cindered Rail Trail are pretty easy. Still, the ride is a moderately strenuous trip due to the climbing on Princess Di.
