This is a multi-use parcel. Livestock may be present. Be aware of hunting seasons. Trail is located near a minimum security prison (you may hear the PA system). No restrooms. Cell coverage is good along most if not all of the trail.
This trail is a loop and can be traveled either direction and is part of the Serenity Trail: 4-Mile Loop
. Running clockwise; the trail drops through a few draws but has steady and easy climbs to its highest point. Running through the pine forest, you'll come to the Serenity Rocks. There are benches here, making a good place to stop and enjoy the scenery. The narrow track continues down the ridge. The junction with the Serenity Trail: 4-Mile Loop
is a left turn before you drop in the canyon as the trail goes along the wall.
The trail has moderate rock to go over and around providing some challenge with a steep drop off the side. After the dry creek crossing, it's an uphill pitch. There are some large rock steps to help you climb. Once at the top, take a moment to enjoy the view and catch your breath. It is a short, winding track back to the trailhead.
The trail bed is packed sandy soil, it drains well after rain, but there may be loose patches. Rocks are periodic throughout the trail.
