Commonly referred to as Power Line, the West Boundary Trail follows the power line from the top of Mount Constitution down to the park's entrance. Popular for many hips and gaps, not for the faint of skill or confidence. Split out at the bottom where Cold Springs trail ties in and hit the truck for another shuttle lap

Note: Moran State Park does not list the trail as closed to bikes on certain calendar days but also makes no reference to allowing bikes though that is it's obvious and primary use. The trail starts at the giant radio towers, but access to this trail from the Mt. Constitution road is clearly marked as trespassing. Most people access Power Line from the intersection with the Cold Springs to Twin Lakes trail.
