Don't take this trail. It seems logical the map, but its mostly hike a bike, since most would take it from north to south to access upper section of pilot rock. That section of pilot rock is nothing special, and its a death march on this connector. If you do need to go that way, just take Laurel Mtn trail to its intersection with pilot rock and ride pilot backwards to the trailhead.

Used this as an access climb to the top of Pilot Rock. It was a bad idea. Some ridable sections, but mainly this is a hiking trail with many hike...
