Decided to make the hour drive to go see this trail with my dog. The 14 mile loop is only for mountain biking. It does allow for dogs to be on the trail. So I decided to go on the horse trail right next to the entrance. That trail doesn’t allow dogs. So before you go make sure you do more research on the trail than this app.

I just did a shorter variation of this conquistador trail. After the actual conquistador part I was done. Very nice trails though.
