Incorrect comments. The trail is accessible through private community. The guard let's people in as they are required to for public access. The pedestrian gate next to guard gate entrance is not locked. The entrance past Rocky Peak Church.

Great ride from north to south, except for the multiple steer I encountered. Their horns looked pretty sharp. Eventually the ambled off and I was able to pass.

There is a small gate on the left of the main gate going up into the houses. The houses were allowed to be built with an easement to access the public trails so access is allowed.

Did Johnson up via Iverson gate, very technical, rock garden. Connected to Devils Canyon Trail down to Poema back to car parked on Iverson before the gate. Devil's canyon is all grown in but doable like a Jungle ride. Nothing steep down but technical with some water.

The trail head is in a private community guarded by personnel and not accessible to the public.

Public access is not only allowed but required. They cannot keep you out. The officially allowed way is through Iverson, but I've gone in via Poema as well though they do not technically need to let you in that way. Poema is just much easier if you are coming from Devil's Canyon.
