Description

Tent Canyon Ridge Trail, is mixed doubletrack and singletrack trail. The doubletrack is at the top of the hill near the Sandpit/South fork intersection. From there it heads east winding its way through the trees, it is non-motorized area and should be fairly secluded. It heads on the doubletrack till the first overlook. Here the trail will begin descending around switchbacks.

While descending it will change to singletrack with few packed and loose rocks, passing a cliff overlooking the South Fork Trail. The trail has a few steeper sections near the bottom, and there are definitely some rocky and rugged sections. This terrain does not typically allow for excellent trail finding, but there are cairn placements through the lower sections.

The trail ends at the junction with South Fork Trail.

Flora & Fauna

Poison Ivy, Rattlesnakes, Mule and White Tail, and Turkeys are the most frequently seen.
