Description

As the first trail in the area, Secret Canyon is a sentimental favorite. It's also the low point in the Pequop Penelope Loop during which most riders will access it by traveling through the private Pequop Ranch and along a ranch road (the owner has given permission for mountain bikers, just make sure to close any gates you pass through).

From the road, the trail climbs steadily, but not too steeply for a mile through a pleasant Pinyon and Juniper forest that offers some shade on a hot day. At the top it connects to Cinder Cone Vista.
