this trail was pretty fun, we originally started from the parking lot next to the tennis court in Avamor, an went through twisted Springs i think.
our 7 year old son, went with us, an he was such a trooper. pretty tough for him, an we had to walk a lot, but after coming to the turn to go up hill near the cattle grave yard it was up hill an the last 20 min, was practically all steep down hill grade on Burnt car. we would do it again as a family, now that my son has the confidence to conquer this trail.

Burnt Car trail is poorly marked and we struggled finding the trailhead. We had to hike to the back of the subdivision, walk through a construction area, and follow the map on our phones. It seems to be an abandoned dirt road that takes you through a gate about a mile in stating "Private Property". There are other trails close by that we saw, and we might try those in the future.

Great place to get away and walk the dog that is close to the city.

A few key things to keep in mind before attempting this trail. First, it's in the Avimor subdivision and you want to take the first left after the community center. The trail entrance will be on you right and there is a parking lot relatively close or you can park by the community center pretty easily. AT&T doesn't seem to get service in that area and apple gps will put you at the community center instead of the trail. The second big thing is there are a ton of bugs on this trail; you'll see horrendous swarms (worse than Ponderosa State Park) of mosquitoes at the beginning, so many crickets the grass moves and the biggest grasshoppers I've ever seen further in. Wear bug spray in the later/earlier hours for that beginning but rest assured most of the path just has a bunch of stink bugs and grasshoppers. The trail itself (after the initial portion) is very pretty. Lots of wonderful scenery and wildlife. You'll hear owls and see lizards and deer. It's mostly by running water which is relatively forested over but is similar to a canyon hike. There are many birds but they are more timid than most parks so bring a big lens if you want any great shots. Personally felt like my 300mm was about 200mm to short for anything decent.
