There are a few trails that look well-traveled, but have signs saying they are off limits. Heed the warnings and don't ride closed trails!

Description

This trail isn't terribly difficult, although there's a solid climb in the middle that keeps the heart rate up.

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.
