BEWARE: An old farmer came up and ripped me a new one because this is supposedly private property. I told him it's listed as trail and he should look into having it removed... he started yelled at me to have it removed.

Hiked and photographed. Out and back about 2.5 miles. Trail goes about 1.25 miles and then appears to end in a farm field.

Trail is unmarked and hard to find at first. You have to walk back toward the Rimrocks to eventually find the trail.

The trail is really more like a cow trail. You walk along a farmer's field for about 0.5 flat miles and then climb down an easy path down the Rimrock. Then, it's about 0.5 mile of walking through scrub brush.

There are a few nice vista views. Otherwise, unremarkable.
