. It is typically used as the uphill route to make a loop going down Hop Canyon Trail #25
Trail 25A is mostly rideable and intermediate in difficulty from a technical perspective. However, the grades and a near 2000-foot ascent will test most riders who will alternate between pushing and riding.
The trail consists of mostly loose rock with a few ledges and uphill features. The switchbacks are steep and overgrown and the tread is faint at times. The view from the intersection with North Baldy Trail #8
