Herman Gulch Trail is a sandy doubletrack continuation of Herman Gulch Rd. It leads to the upper most part of the park, the parking lot at the end of Roosevelt Drive. It is possible to see ATV's on this trail, although it is a seldom occurrence due the locked gate on the Roosevelt Drive side and therefor no thru traffic.

The trail is a moderate climb with a short pumpy section near the top. It is a straight and fast descent with a few rocks and a tiny stream near the bottom. This stream can have some water in the middle of a dry summer, and is often the only place you will find a little mud.
