Description

The trail starts and ends as a nice doubletrack multi-use gravel trail. The central section however is very rocky and heavily eroded, resembling a creek bed in places.

There are several old four-wheel drive vehicles that didn't make it down and were abandoned. The trail is open to foot, bike, and equestrian traffic.
