“A one mile trail from Brown's Ranch Road to the Powerline.”— Tom Dobson
Coming off of Brown's Ranch Road, turn right at the start of the trail and wiggle left and right on a generally downhill slope rolling up and down a few times for about a mile before you hit the Powerline. At the Powerline, you have a bevy of options to choose from to extend your run. This is a super connector trail.
All surface is tightly packed sand.
