Double Rainbow Details
Double Rainbow is a step up in difficulty from the Little Rainbow. It is not very technical, but the climbs are longer and more severe. The trail starts out in the open and meanders around pinon trees over small rocky spots. Once you get back to the denser trees, the trail steepens and becomes smoother. After crossing an old 4x4 road, the trail takes a sharp turn down into the first of several large drainages which you must also climb out of. The dirt becomes sandier and looser while the exposure becomes more intimidating. Watch for a few stumps that could send you places you don't want to go. It's fun cruising down into the drainages, but some turns are very sharp, nearly blind, and have little to no berm - keep on your toes. The trail crosses one more no-longer-used 4x4 path and continues further into mountain forrest. Eventually it hits a 4x4 road known as Sand Gulch. You can turn back for an out-and-back or go downhill on the Sand Gulch 2 track which loops you back towards the road and trailhead you started at - look for the power lines.
Take CR 110 South from Highway 50. Careful turning here if you are heading westbound and needing to turn left onto CR 110. The other direction has a turn lane and you need to turn right where it goes from a 2 way center lane to a 1 way turn lane. If oncoming traffic keeps you from turing, do not fret. You can turn left at Sonic/Walmart and the road goes back to CR 110. Head up CR 110. There are 2 unmarked roads on the left that you will pass on your way to the crest of the hill. Just past the crest, take the left. It should be marked.
