Description

There are sections of this trail that deserve an intermediate rating, but as a whole, I think the trail warrants an easy/intermediate. There is literally no shade, so be prepared with plenty to drink. The trail surface is mostly compact sand/dirt with easy/moderate embedded rock shapes. Be prepared for an occasional surprise slope around a blind corner. Some sections feel like fire road, but no car/truck could pass the tight, steep parts.

Along the way there are a number of ups and downs, with a couple of turns and splits: A few hundred yards north of Deer Trail, near the south end, stay left on the singletrack after the wire towers. The trail will cross the dirt road again, go straight through. Soon, the trail meets Hidden Canyon Rd, a popular place to park for Weir Canyon. Just south of this junction, if you're adventurous, is a split that leads to a short, but difficult - Challenging singletrack connector - that soon rejoins Weir Canyon Trail.

In the northern half, the trail splits again. The spurs rejoin after a quarter-mile, but the left split leads to a short-cut - Bail-out connector - shortening the loop if needed. I suggest the right split - By-pass connector - if you know you can handle the full loop.

After the trail turns 180 degrees, it climbs a short section then splits to the right behind a water tower, ending at E Brightstar Pl. At the water tower, the trail continues left but under a different name, Old Weir Canyon Trail.

Maybe not a "super" but perhaps a "pretty good" bloom?

Not sure what these are but I'm guessing not edible as there are tons of them growing wild at the trail entrance.
