Description

This is the lower 1.4 miles of the Straw House Trail. It can be used to make a very nice loop using the Marufo Vega Trail between the Marufo Vega Trail Connector and the Ore Terminal Trail. It follows a wash and has a gentle grade. This trail continues on all the way to the Telephone Canyon Trail to the north, but it is my understanding that as you go further north past the Marufo Vega Trail Connector, the trail becomes difficult to follow.
