Description

These trails started out as renegade motorcycle trails back in the 1970s. With residential development of the area and increased popularity of off road cycling, the trails have transitioned to nice singletrack for riding, running, and hiking.

There is a very simple trailhead kiosk map and notices of threatened wildlife species in the area.

The trail goes past a very old cemetery. There are a few short, steep climbs and some drainage crossings. Overall, it's one of the best small stretches of singletrack in the area.
