Fairly easy trail with some dirt road but mostly single track. Awesome views from the point on the far east side. On top of mesa with lots of sun so it's usually one of the first trails to dry out in the spring.

Access Info

Park by the North Mesa tennis courts and look for trail head just northeast of the children s play lot.

       Fun, great views. North side of the loop is a little smoother
