Great winter trail when snow covers the ground everywhere else. This would be dusty and hot in the summer, but makes for a good winter run. Signage is ok. Make sure you know the map as some trail junctions are not labeled well, while others are. Fairly level and non technical. Beautiful open sage and juniper landscape.

Very sandy soil with few short trees. Flat trail, easy hike. On a chilly and foggy october day I did not meet a soul.
