The Prison Trail is one of the original trails in the area. This connects Cusick Creek Road and the trailhead there to the Bench Trail
with turn offs for Death Valley
, Bump Trail
, and 911 / Life Flight.
Most of the trail is easy, but there is one steep section as you cross through Death Valley
. If you head into the trail network from the trailhead, you'll be treated to a gentle descent, which can be a fun warm-up.
