Description

Stonehouse Trail winds through some of the most scenic areas of Palos. Features include several armored creek crossings and an old CCC shelter where trail users can rest and chat by a warm fireplace.

Starting at he bottom of Gravity Cavity, the eastern section begins with several tight climbing switchbacks and a section with dips. The next section winds around the top of several scenic ravines. Run uphill to the trail's namesake, an old CCC shelter nicknamed the Stonehouse. A right turn after the Stonehouse and the trail continues to a downhill section.

The final tight turn of this section leads to an armored creek crossing and a three-way intersection. Left at the intersection will take you out to Palos Yellow Multitrack East. Continuing to the right on Stonehouse Trail is a section that was previously named Out-and-Back featuring several tight hairpin turns and two ravine crossings. At another three-way intersection, going straight will take you out to Palos Yellow Multitrack East. Turning right will continue on Stonehouse downhill into an area with a series of bermed turns, a small armored creek crossing, and a large armored creek crossing.

The next intersection brings you to Burrito Hill and end of Stonehouse Trail. Left on Burrito Hill will bring you to Palos Yellow Multitrack East and right on Burrito Hill will lead to 104th Ave.
