Trail shared by Kevin Garrett

New trail restoring connectivity between Newhall and Wildwood Open Spaces.

Description

This trail was recently created to join up the Newhall Open Space entrance on The Old Road to Peach Motorway. Peach Motorway (fire road) was gated off a few years ago due to a lawsuit. This trail connects to the open portion of Peach Motorway which descends into Wildwood Open Space.

The trail can be steep and loose with tight switchbacks and exposure. I rode it up. If I ride it again, I will ride it down. Up is very taxing, even on an eMTB.
