Description

From the southwest corner of the park to Pleasant Creek Road, this trail follows the wash known as South Draw. If accessed from the Tantalus Flats, this is a fun and easy downhill crossing the dry creek bed.

There are a couple technical sections near the ridge at the southwest corner of the park - these could be walked by the less experienced riders. The rest of the trail could be rated as easy.

Pleasant Creek was a great way to cool off near the end of the ride.

Most of the trail is doubletrack w/ some technical spots. The views however are incredible.

Did 95 % of this trail the hard way - up from Pleasant Creek Road - steep. Had to turn around at sunset.
