A combination of fire access roads and singletrack, the North Perimeter Trail provides direct access to the North Fortuna Trail, the Shepherd Pond Loop, and connectors to the Rim Trail Loop and Suycott Valley Trail. Along it, you'll encounter some loose rock and sand used to mediate erosion, but the majority of the trail is hard-pack and light-to-moderate rocky terrain.

Access Info

From CA-52, take the Mast Blvd exit west. Mast Blvd west leads directly to the East Fortuna Equestrian Staging area with direct access to the trailhead.

Currently being graded by a bulldozer crew. Very soft and loose in some of the valleys and uphills.

 Deadly up track.. almost all loose and rocky fire road.. many hike a bike steep sections.. not a good approach to the decent single track areas to the SW.

 Should have read betaflashes review.... Pretty horrible trail. Steep ups and downs, very loose dirt makes any attempt at the uphills feeble. A bad hiking trail, aneven worse biking trail
