“A great trail that connects to the South Dale Ball trail network.”
— Phil Lucero
This is a great trail with an option to go two ways around a small mountain around a mile in. It starts toward the top of Wilderness Gate Road, just before the dogleg right. The trailhead is very close to the South Dale Ball trailhead just further up the road. The two trails do connect eventually as well.
The trail has some tough climbs, fast descents and some rocky sections that are all rideable for intermediate and advanced riders. If you are going north, the trail ends with some steep switchbacks that take you down into a valley where you can find a connector trail to take you back up to the South Dale Ball trail network. If you are going south on Dorothy Stewart, these switchbacks will be challenging. You can also access Upper Canyon Rd and the North Dale Ball trail network from here.
The trail is usually in good condition and well maintained.
