The Trailhead is not Brown Mountain Trail. It is at the Western terminus of Gates Pass Road, just North. The diagram on Alltrails shows a loop consisting of part of the Cougar trail (N) and the low portion of the Brown Mountain trail. There is a trail marker on Brown Mountain trail just after you clear the wash that directs you to the Cougar trail, but you intersect it about 1/2 way. Maybe that's where the confusion lies. It got dark on me while I was figuring this out...So tomorrow's another day.

There and back on the Cougar trail looks more like 5.6 miles. I'll be doing the whole stretch tomorrow for a complete review.

Super east trail. Perfect for small kids.

This is short but steep trail, it's paved all the way. Great workout!
