Heavy horse traffic has left much of this trail badly eroded and rutted. Views along along the edge of the Pyramid bench are however very scenic, find many of these same views and avoid much of the horse trail by taking Trail 2j instead.

      This trail is in really bad shape. Almost impossible to ride in some sections. Wrecked by the horses.

       Rode this trail and it wasn’t even worth the effort, so badly chewed up by horse traffic now you can hardly enjoy a ride.
