Trail shared by Kristen Arendt

A twisty-turny singletrack descent in Yreka's Greenhorn Park.

Description

The top of Sidewinder Trail splits off from AARP Trail, the bottom empties onto Big Ditch Trail. This trail is a fun, winding trail through the woods. There are some notable steeper sections, several switchback and hairpin turns, the trail is built on the side of a steep slope, and there many rocks and roots.

The trail surface is mostly hardpack. This one can get muddy with rain, but not as bad as the lower trails in Greenhorn Park.
