A simple, but technical (in spots) doubletrack (service road) which parallels the Lisa Killough trail, traveling around the western portion of Calero Reservoir. It has a short but steep offshoot at the top that has some great views.

Some intersecting trails may not be bike-legal. Use signage for guidance.

      Rocky, dry, and very steep in a few spots. Overall, a rough ride but pretty fun if your bike handling skills are up for it.

       This is not a trail, it's a service road. Entry is prohibited for park users.

       Really? There's no gate and I've been riding it for years.

       There's signs posted at each entrance as well as at the connectors. You're right, there's no gate.

       I just rode the other day and there's no sign either. This doubletrack is essentially open to whomever wants to ride it. Other service roads have signs in the park, but not this one.
