“Transit open fields, hills and arroyos on a trail that touches on all that Lost Dog has to offer.”— Brendan Ross
Beginning from the north connection on Dead Valentine's Trail, Mayberry heads south through a mostly flat area filled with desert flora. After dropping into an arroyo and climbing back out, it passes a turnoff to the lush Desert Forest trail, which is marked by a cairn. A north fork to Broke Back Shortcut is a short distance after. This exit is easy to miss, so a GPS track may help.
From here the trail begins to descend into another arroyo and becomes more challenging, with larger rocks and loose footing a factor at some points for the next half mile. At the bottom, the trail then immediately begins a climb between La Espina and Broke Back hills, switching back a few times during one particularly steep segment. The top, which is also the trail's high point, is an intersection with Baby Head and La Espina Ledge, with access to Broke Back a short distance to the northeast.
From here, Mayberry widens into doubletrack. The trail becomes an easy descent into a wide arroyo and more plant life. Access points to Granola Bowl and then Tin Mine Hill are the final connections before the trail ends at Bear Ridge Drive.
