This is the southern portion of the San Juan Trail "Lollipop" that will loop you back to cocktail rock from the intersection of both parts of SJT up towards Blue Jay campground. This section is generally ridden north to south (interesection to Cocktail Rock) but both directions are fair game. It also tends to be the preferred route for shuttling the SJT from Blue Jay to Hot Springs Canyon Road. Also, from this trail you can jump off onto the Chiquito trail that goes down to the Ortega Oaks Trailhead.
