Description

From the top of Brown Mountain keep going at the Ken Burton Trail sign. This is a trail built by mountain bikers but has been closed for years and until recently not been passable. After a short up hill the descent begins. There are lots of switchbacks and a short while later, you end up in a wash (near the old Oakwilde Campground). Follow the pink ribbons until you meet up with the trail again. Continue south and up a small climb to the top of Brown Mountain Dam and down the last bit to meet Paul Little Picnic Area and the Gabrielino Trail, where you can make a left and head back to the parking lot.
