Great Trail. Too bad the bikes have taken it over. Came close to being hit multiple times. Otherwise great views!

If this trail takes you by Josephine Falls, then I've hiked it a number of times. It's a beautiful woodsy hike, and up on Mount Buckhorn there are lots of large boulders on and around the trail. I've never seen it called Penrose on any map or sign, so I could be wrong, but the Topo Map seems to align perfectly with the trail I remember.
