Compared to the normal Upper Packard trail, has a lot less ups and downs on the way to the Mapleton Ridge trail. You might wonder why, then, the Upper Packard trail gets slightly more usage. Well, you find out just before achieving the ridge trail: there's a small section of very steep trail that's hike-a-bike up, but not too nasty going down (as long as it isn't muddy). This trail, combined with the Packard trail, is probably the fastest way to get to the Mapleton Ridge trail, from either Packard or Kirkman Hollow trailheads. This is listed as trail 091 on some maps, while the other one (Upper Packard) is listed as 091 on other maps.
