Nice, varied trail crosses David Canyon

John Geronimo

Description

Typically snowy November-February. Fire closures in the summer are common.
This trail is best ridden down the west ridge through steep switchbacks, across David Canyon, then gradually up the east ridge to the Mars Court trailhead.

From Mars Court the following loop can be ridden:

1. Down Wild Turkey to Cajun Turkey (0.2 miles)
2. North on Cajun Turkey to Cajun Pine (0.4 mi)
3. Cajun Pine to Drop In (1.8 mi)
4. Down Drop In to West Boundary (0.26 mi)
5. West Boundary (1.6 mi)
6. More Turkey (1.7 mi)
7. Turkey Trot (3 mi)

About 9 miles. This area of the Manzanitas is remote and less ridden than the northern areas, without cell or amateur radio coverage. Be sure to take plenty of water, food, and repair capability.
