Trail shared by Gregory White

The trail is a good start for hitting some of the east trails and the Cone Mountain Trail.

Description

A pretty easy single/doubletrack with lots of options to spur trails. The upper end of the trail is a little rocky compared to the lower part and most of the trails in the preserve. In a couple portions, you'll weave in between large boulders and the views are great. This trail is also the way back to the trailhead from Cone Mountain Trail, Wrangler, and Rustler trails. Enjoy the nice views of Cone and Brown's mountains.
