Please note that the road to the trailhead was reported closed on July 3rd, 2020. Please check road conditions before hiking. Rocky and rooty terrain make for great exercise and practice on this trail. There are some climbs near the back which, while not very long, are still pretty decent. The signage and the trail itself is good enough that it'd be hard to get lost. And there are usually other people around, in case of injury. At the back of the trail, the loop part, there are several trails which branch off. You get to climb a little more, and the trails are a little more windy and single track and smooth- at least near the beginning. So if you're running (or hiking or whatever) and are like, "Man, that was a quick trip", you could always take one of the "off trail" trails at the back to add some more exploring and mileage.Show more

Signs are posted prohibiting pedestrians. This trail is first a motorcycle trail, then a mountain bike. You aren't supposed to be there on foot. Be careful if you hear a moto coming behind you, and get out of their way. This is a technical trail that is not good for inexperienced riders. Pay attention to the direction as it changes from time to time. No dogs allowed as they would be very unsafe here! The terrain is mostly dry and rocky with a few natural springs. If it hasn't rained in a long time, then there is likely to be a lot of dust so a bandanna may not be a bad idea. There are lots of drops and fast parts. It is a one way trail. May want to go with someone who has ridden the trail previously before you venture off on your own, you will have fun!Show more
