Description

This is a local favorite trail at Brown's Ranch. This trail features more hills and definitely some of the best scenery at the preserve. This trail circumnavigates Cone Mountain which was off to your left as you drove into the parking lot.

Be careful at peak usage times as there are typically many hikers on this trail as well because of its close proximity to the main trailhead. You'll typically use this trail towards the end of your ride as you navigate back to the trailhead, but it is also a starter option from either the Upper Ranch Trail or the Hackamore trails.
