Description

This is a short trail in the Hidden Mesa Open Space. It can be accessed directly by car by taking Parker Road and turning west on Castle Oaks Drive. From Castle Oak Drive, turn left on Pleasant View Drive. After about 3 miles, there will be a small parking lot on your left. Alternatively, and probably more fun, you can access this trail from the Hidden Mesa Trail.

The trail is a short, fun loop on top of the Mesa. Ride either direction. The top of the mesa is a fun rocky ride with quasi slickrock sections. Most of it is fairly easy, but there is one section with several rock ledges that will test your beginner/intermediate skills. The largest of the ledges are around a foot high.

Return to your car, or add in the Hidden Mesa Trail for a fun downhill.
