Description

This one-mile connector is really the only beginner part of the Pequop Penelopes loop. Although there is rolling terrain, there isn't any significant elevation gain or loss. The trail starts at the spring next to three cattle troughs that aren't potable, but provide a nice cool-down if you brought Fido. From there, it heads south to connect to the Six Mile Road just west of the Six Mile Trailhead.

Like on other nearby sections of singletrack, riders will find themselves traveling though a PJ forrest (pinyon pine/ juniper) where pinyon pine nuts are harvested - you'll see piles of leftover cones along the trails. The shade offered by these trees can make all the difference on a hot day.

Quantities of Junipers provide berries for Townsend Solitaires, Pinyon Jays, and Scrub Jays. Other common birds are Casisin Finches, Mountain Chicadees, Ravens, and Green Tailed Towhees.
