Difficulty

Starting from Pamo Rd, the first mile is pretty rutted out with several dry ruts across the trail. This trail could become very difficult during or after rain. Traction is not a problem when dry. All of the up and down hills are mild. Most sections of the trail are a narrow 2-track.About 3 miles from the trailhead, you will be making a sharp turn to the right, almost a U-turn. The trail will continue to the left. But, if you want to stay on Orosco Ridge, take the trail to the hard right. Picture of the turn included below.

The trail starts on some easy paved section. Right after that is the section that is in the worst condition from the months of rain. It gets better the farther you go. The ruts in that lower section will test your suspension. Nothing deep, just hard packed rocky ruts.

It was a nice quiet trail no one there. Easy grades and passable spots. Good for an easy trail ride!
