Description

This trail starts across the street from the Bell Rock Vista trailhead. It begins as a fairly nondescript singletrack right where the sidewalk ends. You'll know you're on the trail after a few yards - it's well-travelled.

There are a few short sections that might slow folks down, but generally it's a nice smooth trail without too much to trip you up along the way. The trail surface is mostly red dirt and features more dirt than rock. Thus, this trail is definitely smoother than many of the others in this area.

The trail continues along to connect with Made in the Shade, Templeton Trail, and Hiline Trail. There's not much vertical, but many short, steep climbs along the way. This area is very well marked at all intersections.
