This trail is so much fun for mountain biking! It can be a little difficult to find the trail head, but the best way I was able to was just search up Aetna Springs road and follow it until the little parking area. The road gets a little bit rough, and muddy, with lots of rocks to get around. This may very depending on the time of year, I was there during the rainy seasons both times I’ve gone. So maybe plan on taking a higher vehicle preferably with 4WD. But it’s well worth it, awesome views and even a stretch that has some cool caves and rocks you can climb on. Be careful climbing though, one time I slipped on some moss and fell about 20 feet and went into a roll. I was completely uninjured somehow... the downhill ride is super fun too.
