Fantastic trail with good flow on mostly rock with some dirt. Intermediate technical, moderately strenuous. Recommended alternate segment for Arth's Corner and Little Canyon trails of Magnificent 7.

       Took this as part of Mag 7. Nice EASY trail that even hits some plains and grass sections. Not for those that want some more challenge. Take Bull run instead and have more fun.
