“Mostly walking uphill, but it's a rowdy, good downhill.”— John Geronimo
This is a very rough trail. Water bars are constructed of stones set vertically in the ground. They stick up like teeth and are obscured by grass.
From the parking area, pass through a fence zig-zag, then a gate that should remain closed. The grassy trail heads for the mountain with climbs that are just a warmup. The trail is fairly easy to follow as it climbs past a couple of springs and into large trees.
Eventually you'll contour along the base of cliffs and reach a large parking area on 366.
With a shuttle ride to the top, this would make a superb downhill. There are many switchbacks, but none have penalty points like cliffs. A few are so tight and steep that you have to stop and turn the bike 180 degrees. Once you reach the grass keep an eye out for the water bars!
