Good maintenance trail. Ride at least once a week. It's a weekly favorite for our group.

Great flowy singletrack! Access at several THs but I like to park at Embudito Canyon and ride north. You can get maps at the Elena Gallegos picnic area/TH entrance station at Simms Park Rd - 1 dollar gets you in. Trails get a bit more interesting north of EG, a bit more technical.

Directions provided are incorrect-- they end in a cul-de-sac blocks away from the trailhead.

365 is relatively uneventful. It will bring you past a lot of people, dogs, and picnic shelters. This a great trail in the winter when the upper trails are impassible. There is much traffic on 365.
