This segment starts at the maintenance road across from the Tinaja Trail
. Taking this trail will get you to the Gorman Falls trailhead parking and bathroom. This is a very, very technical trail with a slow climbing grade. Make sure you stay on the bike only trails.
There are two separate trail junctions where you can either continue on the Gorman Falls Trail or take the hiking ONLY
trails down to the falls. This is the most popular trail in the park because it's the only trail from the trailhead that goes to the parks most popular feature: Gorman Falls. Look out for hikers.
