One of Southern California's very best long distance single tracks. It is a consistently intermediate single track through alpine woods and meadows that keeps you constantly entertained with twists, turns and small rock features. The climbs are all very easy because the trail maintains such a consistent grade. There are a few brief areas with exposure and soft shoulders in the upper portion of the trail to be weary of. This trail is part of a popular shuttle ride that generally starts at Southfork and can end as far down the mountain as the city of Redlands. Bathrooms are located across the highway in the Southfork Campground.
