The roads to the Dry Lake and Horse Creek Trailheads are open all year.

Need to Know

The 17 miles of trails around Cape Mountain were designed to be shared by horses and runners. Thus, for foot traffic, these trails are wide, gently-graded, brush free, and easy to follow. There are trail maps at the major trail junctions (these are set high so someone on a horse can read them—runners may have to stretch to read them). Just remember to practice good trail etiquette and yield the trail to horses.

Description

The Scurvy Ridge Trail is a continuation of the Princess Tasha Trail #1329.4 from the Olson Viewpoint. This transition is not obvious, so look for a wooden post with "Scurvy Ridge" on it. Along the trail, you'll pass a reconstruction of a Native American shelter (a hitsi) and, in about 1.2 miles from the Princess Tasha, you'll come to a junction with the Berry Creek Trail #1329.8 which goes downhill from here.

Continuing on the Scurvy Ridge Trail, you'll soon pass the Horse Creek Trailhead and then a junction with the Horseshoe Lane Trail #1329.6. The Scurvy Trail continues for about another mile to its end at a junction with the west end of the Horseshoe Lane Trail #1329.6 and the Blue Horizon Loop Trail #1329.7. You can use the Horseshoe Lane Trail to make a loop back to the Horse Creek Trailhead.
