A short but fun and technical trail from Lake Cachuma Dam to the Campsites. Up and Down with lots of rock gardens and sweeping turns. Not many jumps but a few rock drops. Good trail for beginners and for experienced riders.

Access Info

If your going south on Highway 154 it will be on the left side, called vista point overlook. There is a parking lot with restrooms and the trail starts right next to the restroom. The end of the trail comes out at Cachuma Lake camping grounds. Cachuma Lake has a convience store/gas station near the entrance and a cool new frisbee golf course.
