The easiest trail in the Corral system, Incense Cedar winds gently alongside Lower Corral Trail featuring some berms and optional rock rolls. If you are looking to climb singletrack rather than paved road, this trail is a great option for lapping Corral Trail as well.

Access Info

The lower end is accessed by riding up Powerline Rd from Columbine Trail (paved road). Look for the trailhead on the left after a swift descent on Powerline Rd that crosses an ephemeral creek. The upper end of Incense Cedar is accessed from the Corral Trail...between upper and lower Corral.
