A great mixed-use trail with views of the gorge, Hood, a small seasonal falls, and more that's useful for making loops.

Need to Know

Dogs must be on leash December 1st to June 30th.
This is a mixed use trail that is very popular with mountain bikers. Be sure to share the trail.
This area lacks official maps, only has a few signs, and is covered in informal trails and private property. It's open so it's hard to get properly lost, but be careful and takethe Trail Run Project mobile app with you.

Description

This is a popular and frequently crowded trail that starts just through an opening in the fence along Old Hwy 8 and the Old Ranch Road Trail #4426 (aka the Jeep Trail). You'll be climbing up the western edge of the Labyrinth scab land more-or-less following a seasonal creek. You'll pass the Little Maui Hidden Canyon Connector Trail and start climbing. After a climb Little Maui Falls will come into view at the west end of a switchback (a few small wet-season waterfalls). You'll also pass through some oaks which provide the only shade on the trail. Eventually the trail does a very large switchback to the east before crossing Little Maui Creek and ending at the Old Ranch Road Trail #4426.

Note: many of the turns have two options, a banked one for mountain bikers and another "for" hikers. This is useful for letting everyone pass without stopping.

Flora & Fauna

Be mindful of rattlesnakes and ticks. Horned lark are ground nesting birds common to the area. Tons of wildflowers during spring.
