Description

From the split, take the righthand trail. The descent starts almost immediately after on narrow, loamy singletrack with brief sections of rock gardens.

Soon after, the trail swings to the other direction, two slightly deep gulches give you an opportunity for some airtime. A little further down, a third, deeper gulch will launch you straight up if you hit it fast enough.

The trail soon changes to old ATV track modified to singletrack, switching back and forth between the two sides as you continue to zoom downhill. Turn right once the trail meets BLM Road 5127 to return to the main trailhead at the base of Limekiln.
