Description

Near the top of the Mathis Canyon Trail, Car Wreck takes a steeper path off to the right over sections of rock steeper than Rock-It Trail. Be prepared for larger drop-offs and other technical challenges. The trail enters a forested area where you'll encounter the trail's namesake, the remains of an old car. Enjoy the roots and trees before pedaling across the Oak Grove Trail to join up with the Mathis Canyon Trail again near the Dripping Cave Connector.
