Starts at the west trailhead, ends at the west trail head with a fun downhill finish. A good ride that exposes the rider to all the Preserve has to offer. Add a little elevation and distance by making the climb all the way up to the bench on the Panhandle trail. A bit of a grunt fireroad climb up but it does add a somewhat better 360° view of the entire area when you get to the bench at the top. Worth it to do it at least once! Remember, use a bell and be aware of hikers and possibly equestrians on the trail and follow proper rules of trail etiquette.

      Trail is in good shape, part of it is under construction and turns into a gravel road and is difficult to pass over without walking your bike.

      Gopher holes are appearing. Made the trail more bumpy than designed.
