large stretches of the trail are cleared for fire safety and make the correct direction very hard to judge. 9/20/2020

It seemed like it was going to be longer than 6.5 miles so I turned around! Lol. Those hills are challenging and full of self doubt! Ha. Great workout. Will finish next time!

Difficulty of moderate is a bit of a stretch. It’s a pretty straight forward trail albeit a few areas with steep inclines. Really beautiful trail.

What an awesome hike! You'd only be able to follow this trail with the app tracking your progress unless you're an absolute expert navigator. Walking along the mountain bike trails was really cool. We walked out on the right side trails until the airborne/sidewinder juncture and back along the opposite side. Tons of cool mushrooms and beautiful redwoods. It was a bit muddy though and steep at parts, so beware.

First to Review

I hiked this trail with my cousin who's a UCSC student. The trail is wide and while it is primarily used for MTB, we enjoyed it on foot just the same. Look for mushrooms, unique art pieces, and other hidden delights while on the trail.
