Description
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.
