Family Friendly There are small pools of water and plenty of shade which attract families of all ages.

Watch out for hikers and other bikers coming from the other direction. A bell on your bike is extremely helpful as there are many blind corners.

Description

This trail includes quite a large bit of shade coverage from adjacent bushes. There are also three nicely built aluminum bridges in well-shaded areas.

The beginning of the trail starts at the end of a paved access road. During the ascent, the singletrack ends and a wide fire road begins at the Buck Gully Fire Road. The fire road continues all the way to end of the trail at San Joaquin Hills Road.
