The main trail entrance is on side of the Vons. It is a pretty tough hill to get up because of how long it is. After the main hill which loopes around above Wal-Mart the trail levels out and is much easier. There are some awesome views up there. Dogs are allowed and it is a great place to mountain bike if you can get up the hill. The landscape is really nice.

Nice little trail with views though i'm not a fan of narrow trails because of snakes! lol. All in all it was a neat well maintained trail.

A little coudy and wet today, but fun none the less! Took our 11 yr old Dachshund on the trail with us today, and she took it like a champ. Her sniffer was at maximum capacity!
