Description

This is the first section of trail leading up from the main Hall Ranch parking lot. It's a steady climb all the way up to the junction with the Antelope trail.

This trail includes a 1/2 mile Rock Garden that can challenge all but the most advanced mountain bikers. It's a consistent climb with big moves up and over rock faces and features. It's rideable by advanced riders even without trials skills, but you'll work for it!

Less experienced riders can choose to park at the other smaller trailhead and ride the intermediate (but still fun singletrack) Antelope trail up to the same spot.
