“A great singletrack with scenic views, tight switchbacks, and a few rocky sections.”— Kristen Arendt
The trail itself is very narrow singletrack with a few exposed sections. Keep an eye open for poison oak in the spring and summer when the trail can be a bit overgrown. There are picnic tables shaded by pine trees about half way at Sierra Saddle. Most of the trail is unshaded, and there are several winding switchbacks that lead you through the trees. Depending on which direction you run, the trail is either a gradual downhill or steady uphill.
The trail can be combined with the Dawn Mine Trail 12W13 and Millard Canyon Trail for a nice loop.
