Description

This is a partially singletrack trail that climbs out of the Staunton Ranch Trailhead with a moderate grade. The trail is smooth, wide, often dusty, and is the most crowded in the park. The trail terminates at a 4-way intersection. Staunton Ranch Trail does not offer particularly spectacular views, but is the gateway to many more interesting trails in the park.
