A fire road used primarily to service power line towers, there are great views of the area.

Overview

Features: -none- [Add/Remove]

Description [Suggest Changes]

From the edge of Turnbull Canyon Rd, scramble past the cattle gate guarding the steep fire road and climb the plain looking hills 1/3 mile to a plateau beneath power lines. From there go left down the sweeping fire road for 1/2 mile until you see a singletrack on the right, this is the entrance to Cow Trail, a fun ribbon of trail that dances in and out of many hillsides. Passing by the entrance to Cow Trail, staying left, Skyline Dr - fire road continues its random up and down march through brown grassy hills and awesome views.

Almost exactly one mile after Cow Trail, there will be a small singletrack on the right that can be easily missed. After one final rise you'll see the singletrack break away to the right, along and above the back fence line of a row of houses. If you miss the turn, the fire road continues for a few hundred yards, then dead-ends at a chain-link fence. Back-track and look for the small trail on your left. This will be a new trail, Skyline Dr - singletrack, since it no longer is a fire road.
