Little Knives is another main "highway" through the Halfmoon Bay trail system. It connects you from the Datsun Alley/Rollercoaster trails to the Triangle Lake trails (there are actually five exit trails you can take to get over to the Triangle Lake trail from Little Knives) as well as Barrel 'o Frogs, the Missing Link and out to Hwy. 101 at Trout Lake. If you are on your bike don't take any of the exit trails on your right over to the Triangle Lake trail as this trail is for hikers only.

Little Knives is a bit challenging as there is a loose, rocky climb about 5 minutes past where Little Knives begins off of Datsun Alley. This is probably the most challenging area of the trail and will likely take you between 10 and 20 minutes to get up, depending on how much you have to push your bike. There are also a couple of other rocky spots and a couple of really rooty areas with one more fairly substantial hill (no loose rock on this one). Once you get up that last hill it is pretty smooth sailing out to Hwy. 101 or to the entrance to the Missing Link trail.

      Large tree down across trail, blocking trail Removed small branches and it’s passable. Needs a chain saw or large hand saw and a lotta time.
