Aptly named, visitors will spend much of this route meandering through sagebrush.
This trail can be difficult to follow at times as it crosses quite a number of established and social trails. Not to worry, you may wander onto a different trail but you can’t get lost.
The trail starts from the main parking lot. Take the pronounced trail just north of the three-sided kiosk and immediately take the branch to the right. In a short distance you'll cross another trail, again take the branch to the right (past the sewer manhole).
At the next intersection, stay to the left and head towards the large basalt boulder. Shortly after passing the boulder take the branch to the right. At the next intersection take the path to the left (the path to the right leads to the River Trail
). For a short distance you are on the same path as the Jack Rabbit Trail. Leave this path by taking the middle branch when the trail splits in three (0.27 miles from start). At the 0.38 mile mark there is another intersection with the Jack Rabbit Trail. Continue straight, passing a large tree on your left.
At about 0.48 mile the trail crosses the service road from the mid-point trailhead. There will be a posted trail map visible off to the left. There are a lot of side trails in the next stretch that you need to ignore. Near the end of this section you leave the sagebrush. At about 0.69 mile the trail crosses an old irrigation/drainage ditch that is about 10’ deep. After you pass the ditch you should be able to see another posted trail map off to the left.
Next there is a series of horseshoe bends in the trail before it straightens out (there is an alternate path that goes straight through this section). The trail ends at an intersection with the Chamna Trail
(there is a posted trail map at this location). The Chamna Trail
provides the most direct path back to the parking lot.
