As of November 2017, 505 is a new multi-directional trail creating a new alternative to riding 230 as a connection to 365.
The trail is characterized by numerous tight arroyo crossings, which can be loose and sandy, as well as some fun little rock gardens. The trail tends slightly downhill when ridden in the south-bound direction.

       Fun/newish trail that provides another way to get farther north where most of the more technically challenging trails in the foothills are
