“One of the longer trails in Round Valley, Rambler has it all!”
— Tom Robson
Starting from the North Old Ranch Road parking lot, head east on this climbing, descending, climbing, then undulating trail. Rambler does just that, rambles through some very varied sections.
Heading west to east the trail climbs past Rambler DT
, through a very difficult rocky a loose section to an intersection with Rademan Ridge
. From the ridge, continue east on a gnarly downhill to the Round Valley Express
. The next section of Rambler continues east and climbs a serpentine track on tacky dirt, past Seventy 101
and ends at a four-way intersection with Nowhere Elks
and Rusty Shovel
From this four-way intersection continue east and descend the best part of Rambler yet! Crush past the intersections with High Side and Karis as the trail winds its way down to the eastern slope of Round Valley.
The final portion of Rambler rolls easily along the hillside as bench cut singletrack. Bypass Ramble On
, Karis, and stay left at Practice Loops
. Eventually the trail crosses Ability Way, Fairway Hills Connector
, and terminates at Hat Trick
on a small climb.
