Nice scenery, very well used trail. Good for an easy hike that will still get your blood pumping
It's fun early if you go crowded later in the day
Good maintenance trail. Ride at least once a week. It's a weekly favorite for our group.
Great flowy singletrack! Access at several THs but I like to park at Embudito Canyon and ride north. You can get maps at the Elena Gallegos picnic area/TH entrance station at Simms Park Rd - 1 dollar gets you in. Trails get a bit more interesting north of EG, a bit more technical.
Directions provided are incorrect-- they end in a cul-de-sac blocks away from the trailhead.
365 is relatively uneventful. It will bring you past a lot of people, dogs, and picnic shelters. This a great trail in the winter when the upper trails are impassible. There is much traffic on 365.
