Description

This is a pretty mellow and easy route. At the junction on the 4x4 wheel drive road, turn right (east) and you can choose to go either clockwise or counter-clockwise, although most people go counter-clockwise. The trail is singletrack, although there are ample opportunities to pass others in areas, and sees a large number of runners, dogs, and hikers in addition to bikers.

This trail can be done in under a half hour easily, but can also be used to access longer/ more difficult trails, such as the Telegraph/ Anasazi Descent trails further east, or Stacey's Loop or Mike's Loop further northeast.
