Loose sandy switchback downhill that ends in a 55+ trailer park. There are no "No Trespassing" signs on the trail but there is a "No Parking" sign where the trail reaches the road at the trailer park. Unsure if access is ok so thread lightly and silently.
Not sure if this trail has a name, so if it does, please edit.

Access Info

At the gate on the East Side Service Road, go East and down.

No mud (it's sand and rock) and great traction today. Awesome!

 We've always called it The Sandy Switchbacks.

A lot of thought went into that one.

 Entry anywhere via Pleasant Valley trailer park is ill-advised. We've been confronted by the land-owners on several occasions - never happily...

The roads in there are all private property.
