Horse Trough splits off of the Bench Trail just after the upper entrance. It generally parallels the Bench Trail but instead of descending, stays more level and crosses Riverview Extension Trail. You can continue riding on Horse Trough trail to access Homeless Camp, Roller Coaster, and Concrete Block. The trail is somewhat technical and twisting and narrow in places. It can be ridden either direction.
