Trail shared by Benjamin Pontecorvo

An alternate route off of Longhorn.

Description

This trail is full of rugged, rocky singletrack, with some great forest trail sections to break it up. It's a great run in either direction.

Due to ample shade from trees, this one is cooler than the rest of the Park, so it's a great alternative on a hot day.
