A short and twisty neighborhood figure eight circuit. Smooth singletrack with some tight turns and switchbacks. Encounters with hikers and dogs are common. Probably not worth seeking out but a great place to get in some quick laps if you live in the area.

Note: The trailhead can only be accessed from eastbound Stetson Hills. If you are on westbound Stetson Hills you'll need to make a u-turn to access the official trailhead. The open space can also be accessed from behind the IHOP however this spur may or may not be a legitimate trail.
