Description

You can drive and park at the trailhead that branches off from the Grover Park Road. Trail starts between two boulders that sit like a gate at the trailhead; you can see them easily from the main road. First 400 feet of riding requires navigating a rock garden up a patch of trail where a small stream runs seasonally. You can clear it, but it takes a lot of bouncing around.

After clearing the stream bed/trail portion at the beginning of the loop, you just follow the ATV track for the next 2 miles or so, making sure to keep to the right and climb the steep incline after about 0.5 miles. During that section, you'll cover a gradual climb punctuated by some steep, short ascents, all doable for an intermediate, moderately in-shape biker.

Once you hit the plateau, you can exit the the trail left for 50 feet and get a great view of Jensen Canyon and look up at Twin Peaks. Get back on the trail and follow it around until just before it starts to drop. Before the ATV trail starts to descend, look to exit left on a trail that faintly appears to the left. Follow it down through the trees and out onto the mountain's shoulder, covered by small, exposed rocks and common mountain flora.

Descend along the shoulder, looking to pass between two large pine trees where the treeline and mountainside meet. You make a short, steep descent after passing the trees down to a saddle where the mountain rises again. At that point, turn right and follow the singletrack down to the meadow, 300 yards or so.

At the meadow, turn left and follow the singletrack all the way out where you'll emerge by the Grover town water tank above the cemetery. During the descent, you'll encounter two wire gates that you should make sure to close if they were closed when you reached them. At the cemetery, follow the road out to the Grover Park Road you started on.
