Trail Overview

This is a great intermediate trail featuring beautiful views of surrounding canyons and chaparral. On clear days you can see a long stretch of the LA Aqueduct to the north. Most of the trail is relatively mild, with some steep climbs, deep ruts, and mud holes adding a bit of challenge. There are numerous trail bypasses with more difficult obstacles that are not sanctioned; please respect the area and stick to the main trail. This trail dead-ends at a locked gate, but you can use Quarry Road 6N19 and Coarse Gold Road 5N24 to make this a through route. To prevent damage, avoid this trail after moderate to heavy rainfall.
