This trail is called Mine Field because it's a nearly two mile long rock garden. Be advised to be extremely courteous to hikers as this trail is extremely sensitive to mountain bikers and some people may phone the park police that they've encountered a mountain biker on the trail. I've been told that if the Park police catch you they will confiscate your bike. Going on off hours is the best, i.e. super dawn or late evening in during the week and not on weekends.

Access Info

There are two entrances one on the north side and one on the south side by the police station. It's best to enter from the north side off of the 9W bridge that leads to the Women's Foundation castle look out.

This trail is Unsanctioned, Ride at your own Risk!
