Family Friendly A wide road, easy to walk into and out of from the neighborhood.

Description

Water Tank Road is a fire road that connects the busy Four Corners with Dreaded Hill Rd, and after that, the back of a Foothill Ranch neighborhood. Beyond the Dreaded Hill Rd hairpin intersection, it's a lesser used trail in the park. Besides some cool views down into the canyon, there's little else to it. More exciting trails are to be had in Whiting elsewhere.

Its main purpose is probably as a connector for most people, not a destination. If you are coming up from the neighborhood, there is a bit of a climb.

A nice breeze at the top of the Luge.

This is a fun route through what is primarily XC riding in Whitting Ranch.  I went through Sage Scrub, Live Oak, Cattle Pond, Cactus Hill and Sleepy Hollow.
