This trail begins directly off of the road. A gate marks the trailhead, along with a small information kiosk. There isn't any space to park legally, so you'll likely be riding to this location.
The first quarter mile or so of this trail is closed seasonally, between February 1 and July 15. This means you'll likely only be riding the upper section, which connects with Shoestring
and Hidden Canyon
A short section of this trail goes through important Native American heritage sites, the "Indian Pits." Be sure to be respectful of the significance of this area when passing through.
