Description

This trail offers 360-degree views of the city. The hilltops glisten as the cacti reflect sunlight. Almost all trails end at South Hills, so if you begin a trail on either Bonnie Cove, Elwood, or Sunflower Avenues, you are sure to hit South Hills.

The ride over South Hills gives a peek into an impressive nursery operation below. This trail goes from Alosta Canyon S. Fork to Glendora Avenue.
