Description

Race Track is an easy, steady uphill climb, with no obstacles. The trail meanders through scrub and some juniper trees, nothing much that provides shade. The rock formations at the end are worth the trip to see them.

Instead of returning on Race Track, if you continue along, the trail meets up with Dead Bird Trail, which is also an easy trail with perhaps a few more rocks and roots than Race Track. Dead Bird meets up with Lost Trail towards the end, returning to the parking lot.
