A rugged trail through the cedar scrub.

Description

This is a more rugged trail through the cedar scrub that is more difficult than you might expect based on the distance and elevation change. It has a different character than the easy trails through the pasture to the east of the Park Road or the difficult, rocky trails northwest of the visitor center.

From the Heritage Loop #8a, it starts as an earthen doubletrack, climbing about 0.6 miles until you reach a building. The doubletrack becomes increasingly primitive and rocky as you approach and pass this building. Shortly after the building, the trail makes a 90° turn to the left.

This section of the trail until another 90° left turn at the 1.4-mile mark is particularly rugged and you can expect to have to watch your footing as there are a lot of rocks on the trail.

You'll find another building and water tower at this second 90° turn. After this point, the doubletrack becomes easier with a stone base until the end of the trail at the intersection with Davenport Ranch Road.
