Part of this trail goes through private property; respect landowners, and stay on the trail.

Runner Notes

This area of the park can get especially tricky from a wayfinding perspective; the trickiest part can be avoided by simply staying off the Boom Trail, and turning around if you hit a "private property" sign (the trails do continue through private property, but will add significant length and brush to your adventure).

Description

From the trailhead at the junction of Wildernest and Vineyard roads, the trail heads north with a sign that says "Archery Range."

The trail is smooth, joyful singletrack, but a little brushy. After about 0.1 mile there is a junction with the Boom Trail heading to the left (northwest) underneath the power lines; to stay on the Wilderness Trail, just keep climbing. After about a half a mile, the junction with Hell's Hole invites users to the left; turn right to stay on the Wilderness Trail.

The trail continues up and down heading east, up and down several short, steep climbs. A "hikers only" cutoff can slightly shorten the route, but they end up in the same place.

Continue bearing left—avoid the Boom Trail, unless you want a much longer outing—and eventually the trail will wind up on the north end of the Horse Campground. You can take Vineyard Road back to the trailhead for an easier finish or come back the way you came.
