Description

A multi-use connector trail from Skyline Trail to Horse Gulch road, this trail can be started from either Horse Gulch TH, with a 2.1 mile gentle climb, or using Skyline Trail on a 1.7 mi switchback climb.

This route can be done as a big day ride dropping into the "Gulch" for a variety of options, a town loop or a Horse Gulch, 7.8 mile out-and-back.

The trail is generally easy to find and follow with all the cairns. It is well laid out, brilliantly cut and super buttery with some fun switchbacks.
