Description

This is a decent moderate (+) extension to the existing trails at Monument Preserve. Good moderate climb on lower slopes of Mount Herman. There are multiple offshoots off this trail so stick to the main one.

In my opinion, this is best ridden in a counter-clockwise direction, due to a scrabbly descent on the far end that'd certainly have large hike-a-bike sections.
