Description

Half Acre Trail connects the top of Grass Hill to Palos Orange Multitrack and can be divided into three sections. The section nearest Grass Hill is in a grove of trees and has a few whoops that can catch you off guard if you are not prepared. Between the grove of trees and the main forest is an open grass area. The section between the grass and the Palos Orange Multitrack is dirt singletrack.
