Description

A doubletrack loop around the top of South Table Mountain with beautiful views, this trail is mostly flat and exposed to the sun so bring your sunscreen and water.

Keep an eye out, as the trail is also frequented by many hikers and horseback riders. The trail is plenty wide to accommodate everybody though, so politely passing shouldn't be a problem.

Have used this since the 1980s. Fairly easy on top but the access points are difficult climbs. This trail has been crusher fined to death. 10mi — 1h 00m
