“An exciting descent and a good climb that are just as good in either direction.”— Kristen Arendt
Bikes and hikers only. Use fee ($3/day) payable at multiple self-serve stations.
When starting from Fig Ave / River House Barn, cross the stream and climb right up over the top of the "White Rock." Once at the top of the climb, you'll come out of the trees for a second and then drop back into the trees.
Enjoy the smooth trail and sweeping turns as you head back down to another creek crossing. After crossing the creek, climb up a bit and continue along the trail as it becomes a bit exposed before coming to an intersection with the Big Dipper Trail.
Most runners will end up running this trail both ways as it is the main connection between the Dippers and the other trails at the Conservancy. It is just as fun the other way with a good climb and fun descent back down to the River House Barn.
