Rocky and scenic singletrack. Generally intermediate riding but with several challenging sections. Many ups and downs in either direction. Popular with bikers, hikers, equestrians, and motos. A good out-and-back or can be linked with several other nearby trails.

Two options: 1) keep your feet dry and ride the bench cut trail on the north side of the creek. 2) stay in the bottom of the canyon and ford the creek many times.
