“A wandering mix of wide, easy dirt roads and trails crossed by other trails many times.”— Dave Gregg
If you somehow manage to stay on the trail without getting side-tracked through the maze of flat hiking trails, it will ascend the impossibly steep, but short, western shoulder of Villa Park Dam, dead-ending on Lolita St. Continue south on Lolita for a hundred yards and the trail resumes on the left through the open field.
The southern portion of this trail is flat, hard-packed, riverbed sand and gravel, cross country stuff.
It's my guess that this "trail" was only recently given a name, and before that it was a mish-mash of different trails. At least, that's what it feels like when you ride it.
