“A varied trail that gets you up to the other great trails in the area.”— Michael Ahnemann
It starts out as a mellow, winding trail, climbing gently on mostly smooth dirt trail with a few smaller rocks thrown in. After it passes Herkenham Trail, the climb becomes more difficult with a steady grade, loose soil, and rock steps along the way.
The reward for the climb is a very nice, flowy section of trail descending back down the other side. It's mostly hard-packed red dirt, winding through bright green Junipers.
You'll meet up with Carroll Canyon Trail on your right, and this trail continues half a mile past that to it's finish with Bandit Trail and Ridge Trail.
