Trail Overview

This mostly single-track trail is hard-packed with some rock gardens and bigger boulders that you can ride around. Starting at the top from the eastern side off of Long Valley Road, the trail begins with some great flowy turns. You're treated to some great views of Lake Morena on your way down. The rocks become more frequent and there are some short rock garden sections. There is a creek crossing just before the trail intersects Corral Canyon Road. The water crossing can be up to 12 inches deep depending on the time of year. Heading west past the road crossing, the trail gets far less rocky and more flowy and hard-packed. There's one small whoop section and a few short steep climbs to conquer. Keep an eye out for rain ruts and two-way traffic.
