Description

Start at the signed new wide doubletrack just beyond the kiosk heading south on the south side of the Walnut Creek Loop. Dodge cactus and yucca in the primitive doubletrack as it bends to the west and meets up with the north half of the Walnut Creek Loop. Take a right on the north side of the loop and ride back to a gate at the trailhead. Greet the friendly protesters and dump some water on your head.
