Dry Canyon Loop - Start by Police Shooting Range. BST to Shooter, to Crankland, to Betty, up to the altar (big pile of rocks). Lament up and around Dry Canyon through Crop Circles, back to BST.

The climb up through the scrub oak is strenuous, but enjoyable. There are a lot of unmarked trail intersections on Crankland, so connecting to Betty might be tricky if you're unfamiliar with the area (bring a GPS). Most of the loop is scrub oak, so don't expect any shade. This is a good Spring/Fall or early morning ride. You can shorten the ride by coming down Dry Canyon (watch out for hikers), but you'll miss Crop Circles, which is probably the funnest part of the loop.
