Family Friendly Fairly easy trail. Great for families biking or hiking.

Call after rains, as heavy accumulation will close trails.

Description

Starting this trail from the main trailhead as it is shown here. You start with the Cedar Break Outer Loop, then continuing forward with the Denio Creek Warbler Trail across the next smaller creek crossing where you can either hike a bike the rock steps, or go left and ride down the landscape timber steps and across the creek bed continuing back up the on the rocky bank to the trail marker. Go left at the marker onto the Paluxy River Trail for a hundred feet or so till you reach the marker and now follow the Black- Capped Vireo Trail. This direction starts you off on a long climb. The trail is not too steep, but at the beginning there are some rocky / ledgy sections that can be challenging.

Once you've reached the log bench at the top you have cleared most of the climb. From here there are small ups and downs as the trail weaves in and out of Cedars, Scrub Oak and hard packed singletrack with some areas of embedded plate rock that can keep you on your toes.

You eventually come to a fence line and marker where you'll stay to the right coming to an intersection of fence, gates and trails. Going left and down takes you on the last portion of the Cedar Break Outer Loop and exits the trail system. Go through the gate and to the right following the doubletrack and the trail ends at a T into the Cedar Break Outer Loop fence line.

Going in the reverse direction as shown, from the gate area onto the singletrack portion of the trail eventually becomes a super fun downhill. Again, there is no right or wrong direction here.
