This excellent trail was built in 2014 to link the east side (Cedro Peak
) to west side (Otero Canyon) of the Manzanitas.
The trail begins at Deadman
, crosses "South 14" (SR 337), and then winds its way up to Lower Pine
. From here you can go north or south with many options.
Besides its utility in crossing the highway and doing loops, it's just a very nice trail with smooth sections along the contours.
Be careful crossing the highway!
