Overview

These trails are a mix of doubletrack and singletrack. The recent fires destroyed the scenery and development has altered the original trail.

Need to Know

Fire damage destroyed 50% of the trails. There's a creek crossing under a highway overpass.

Description

Black Mountain Ranch was severely damaged by the fires in April 2014 and the eastern half of the Ranch is under development. As a result, the Lusardi Creek Loop trail was bulldozed to a dirt road up to the highway overpass. After the overpass, it becomes Del Sur Lusardi Connector Trail - singletrack.

The Del Sur Lusardi Connector trail from the overpass starts with a creek crossing and a climb up a concrete embankment, a quick left at the top will put you on the trail. From here it winds through brush with slight elevation changes. There is a brief ride through a residential neighborhood, on Artesian Rd. A right turn near the end of Artesian Rd. will put you back where the trail ends.
