This is a popular Multi Use Trail (hikers, runners, cyclists) maintained by SAGE Trail Alliance (nonprofit funded by donations). This trail requires a bell to ride (provided for free at bell boxes in parking area).

Fun, flowy, rocky single track typical of the SB South Coast. It can be ridden as either an out-and-back, or as a loop by climbing up the trail to Inspiration Point and coming down the fire road to the upper trail head. There are some very difficult tech sections, but they can be easily walked. This trail is heavily used by hikers, please always ride with a bell.
