Skinny as a ribbon, this snaking trail dives in and out of a never-ending supply of rolling hills.

Description

The is a really fun, thin strip of trail that smoothly weaves in and out of an assembly line of land wrinkles for 1.7 miles. Technically, it's very easy, but the narrow width and mild hillside exposure makes it feel more dificult. Along this stretch, 1.5 miles from the start of Cow Trail, you'll come to a hilltop overlooking Whittier College football stadium. Do not take the downhill trail to the left (Worsham Canyon spur), stay right for another 1/4 mile to a wide staging area where Workman Ridge Trail goes uphill right, and Worsham alternative - fun intermediate singletrack goes left along the backyard fences.
