Description

Cars have access from the gravel/dirt road entrance off old Fullerton Rd to the horse corral. Past the corral the 20+ ft-wide "trail" rolls easily uphill beneath large oak trees for about a half-mile where a dirt road splits uphill to the right, this is Black Walnut Trail.

Stay left and a few hundreds yards uphill on the right is another dirt road, Tower Access Road - A hidden singletrack connector.

Stay left and just a few dozen yards later is a steeply rising dirt road on the left, this is Purple Sage Trail.

Stay right and the road descends steeply, 12%-15%, for a quarter-mile to where a very beautiful doubletrack stretch of Schabarum Trail doubles-back uphill to the right. The road continues downhill from there to the horse stables along a short section of Schabarum Trail.
