“A fantastic out and back ride with technical uphill and rewarding downhill!”
Bryan Vernetson on Jul 1, 2013

1.5 Miles Singletrack Type 442’ Ascent -100’ Descent 5,190’ Low 5,557’ High
This trail is technically part of the larger Foothills Trail - but that trail is very disjointed, with several broken segments and lollipops ending at roads. So as mapped, this is one section of the Foothills trail in the Maxwell Natural Area.

Park at Maxwell Natural Area and ride north behind Hughes Stadium. You'll cross over the Foothills trail and continue up through a small valley past the big "A". You'll come to a fork in the trail and you can keep going or turn around for a quick out and back.

Was dry on the start of the run, then it started to rain. It got muddy on the way out.
