Lower Sunset is a fantastic flowing trail that drops down from the Chaney Trail / Mt Lowe fire road into Millard Campground. An intermediate trail with no serious drops, Lower Sunset is great for beginning riders and also enjoyed by seasoned folks too. The trail is ridden both ways and frequented by hikers who park or stay at the Millard Campground area.
