“A challenging, short trail that has three creek crossings, some switchbacks, and steep climbs.”
— Dave Q
The first half of the trail is all climbing, but the second half is a steep downhill.
If you don't want to do the climbs on the way back, at the end of the trail, head south toward the equestrian center, go through the equestrian center parking lot, then head north on Glendora Mountain Road, and east on Big Dalton Canyon Road to get back to the parking lot.
Parking is located half a mile after making a right onto Big Dalton Canyon Road. The trailhead is at the southwest end of the parking lot.
