This isn’t really just one trail. Mount Watson Blvd is a paved road that takes you through the area. There you can take dirt trails in many different directions. Overall it’s a great area to explore, but if you are trying to follow a trail from the app you are pretty much on your own to decide where you want to go. The map I followed was just a paved road, so I did my own exploring.
