Description

This trail can be accessed from the parking area at Skegg's Point. From the parking lot, ride North on Skyline Blvd for 100m or so until you see a trailhead on your left. There should be a gate and park map there. Take the trail on the right side that goes downhill.

The end of this trail takes you to Star Hill Road, but most people would use it to access other trails in Skeggs, such as North Leaf Trail or Tafoni Trail. Since this is a doubletrack, it can be more fun to ride downhill on other singletrack trails and use this as the easier exit back to the car.
