“A long, mellow, and mostly downhill singletrack hike.
— Paul Rogers
Even though this trail doesn't stray far from Highway 20 for long, it makes for a good route. The most heavily used section is between Harmony Ridge Market and White Cloud Fire Station, which is also one of the most smoothed sections. The grade is gradual and most people hike it one-way and shuttle back to the start. It's close to Scott's Flat Lake Trail
so many people work a portion of Pioneer in with a Scott's descent.
There is trail parking at Harmony Ridge Market, White Cloud, Equestrian overlook, Skillman, and the Alpha Omega Vista. There are lots of trail markers along the way and even posted on some trees. Sometimes it's just a forestry logo and other times it's a directional sign.
Be aware that this trail is heavily trafficked by mountain bikers and horseback riders, and since the trail also parallels the highway for almost its entirety the trail often has less than desirable hiking conditions.
