Description

This is a loose but interesting section of trail. It starts on Rd 242 and finishes at a junction with the Pinyon Trail, though the forest service map shows it joining Bear Scat instead. Both ends feature extended climbs on a loose surface with limestone ledges.

The top section of the trail changes from smooth and straight to twisting with rocks. The northern climb/descent is more continuous with tighter turns and shorter / steeper grades.
