A rather smooth and easy going trail that sees the traffic of bikers, hikers, runners and horseman on a daily basis. A great area to hone your corning and switchback skills. At the top of the climb take the Mule Ear Lookout to get an incredible view of the valley. Most will ride the trail in a clockwise fashion though either direction is allowed and just as fun.
