The Terrace Trail is part of the network of trails in the city of Newcastle. It connects the Highlands Loop Trail with the Crosstown Trail by starting low in a residential neighborhood and climbing via a series of switchbacks. Along the way you will pass through a forest full of big trees and boulders alongside the trail. A bench provides an opportunity to rest during this steep climb.

Combine this trail with others nearby to increase your mileage. You can even continue on into Cougar Mountain Park where the multitude of trails will keep you busy for days.
