Some Mud History

Getting forecast...

A bi-directional twisting and narrow trail that connects to the upper park areas.

Justin Scheifflee

Overview

From late December through early April this trail tends to get very wet and muddy and should only be ridden if it is frozen.
Dogs: Leashed

Description

Horse Trough splits off of Bench Trail just after the entrance. It generally parallels Bench Trail but instead of descending, stays more level and then climbs a bit before crossing Riverview Extension Trail. This section starts out tight and twisty along a ridge that used to form a small pond. At the midpoint of the trail there is an old concrete Horse Trough on the downhill side of the trail. From here, the trail gets less tight and twisty and eventually ends in a clear cut area before joining Lower Riverview Trail. You can continue riding down Lower Riverview Trail trail to access Concrete Block and Homeless Camp.

The trail is not very technical but is twisting and narrow in places. It can be ridden either direction.
