Trail Overview

#561 in the Danskin Trail System is mostly an easy ridge line trail, but it starts with a more challenging steep and rocky climb with roots and boulders, thus making it a more challenging trail. From the intersection with #400, it starts with this difficult climb with very loose dirt. There are multiple lines to choose from, but all lines are loose and steep. Getting up this climb could require some advanced maneuvers and skill, but going down it would be a bit easier. From here the rest of the trail is an easy ridge line trail similar to the rest of the trails in the area, of a 3 difficulty. It crosses an intersection with #560, but this intersection is easy to miss since there is no trail sign. Use this trail as a way to bail out from the creek trail back to the ridge lines.

Difficulty

This is an intermediate trail due to one challenging obstacle at the south end of the trail that is full of rocks, ruts, and roots. The rest of the trail is an easy ridge line trail.

Access Description

The Danskin Trail System covers 60,000 acres and 150 miles of off-road trails in a high desert mountainous terrain. There are three staging areas. Bender Creek Trailhead on the north end, Willow Creek Trailhead on the east end, and Three Point Mountain Trailhead on the west end. This is a very popular riding area, but the trails are so expansive that even when the parking lots are full, you may not run into many people while out riding. The summer is likely very hot and dusty here, so the trails are best in spring and late fall.
