Description

The trailhead starts from the parking lot. Unfortunately, you start straight up for about 200 yards, but don't let this scare you as there are a couple more tree-covered, short, steep rollers before you'll find yourself at a peak (about a half mile from the parking lot). Get a chance for a quick breather, and you'll be descending through tree-covered trail until you come up to Latigo Canyon Road.

Go to the right (going south) up the road for about 1/8 of a mile; on the left there is a dirt road, and you'll see a private driveway with a gated arch. On the left of the private drive there is a dirt road. Take the dirt road up until you come to the peak. Once you start descending, bear to the trail on the farthest left. Stop at the bottom of the saddle, and you'll notice a trail on the left and a trail on the right. Take the trail on the right side descending into the canyon.

The top half is slick rock technical descending. About 100 yards from the saddle, you'll see a fork in the road - take the left side and continue your descent. Ride this until you come to a three-way fire road intersection. Take the fire road to the north, and you'll see a singletrack to your left. Continue on the singletrack until you come to a parking lot called Corral Canyon. Take a breather and now reverse the trail until you get back to the saddle. You now can take the singletrack that went to the left and continue this until you get to Latigo Canyon Road. This will look familiar to you as you previously climbed up to the road from the other side. Take that trail all the way back to the Kanan Road parking lot. Have fun!
