Red rocks, beautiful country.
The trail is more of a 4wd road and are a little easy to get off track on as there are no signs.

The first half of the trail from the trailhead on FR 74 (Rucker Canyon Road) to Bruno Saddle was in great condition, visible its entire length. Occasional clusters of catclaw were present, but otherwise it was fine. From Bruno Saddle down to the junction with the North Bruno Trail, it was intermittently visible, and overgrown with grasses and flowers in some places. There are occasional markers to help guide the way, but it can at times take a bit of exploring to find the correct trail. Beautiful views of rock cliffs, grassy meadows, and just a nice area that was unaffected by the Horseshoe II fire.
