The Monkey Trail is a very hilly section on the YUT-C 50K/25K course in Mill Creeek Park (Youngstown, Ohio). It begins when you cross a small wooden bridge, taking you up & down, over the Love Log, down Pinball Ridge, and eventually ending at a paved park road. This is where you turn around to head back & complete your lap.
