A great alternative, or bailout from the ultra-sandy Rabbit Valley 8 trail.

Description

This doubletrack begins 1/4 mile further south along the steep doubletrack used to access the Rabbit Valley 8. It parallels the northern leg of that trail, allowing an alternative to and bailout from the sand. The doubletrack terminates in a small turnaround from which the remainder of the Rabbit Valley 8 can be accessed.

The doubletrack is actually quite fun. While it does not place hikers up against the cliff face like the Rabbit Valley 8, it still offers great views of the cliff. It can be sandy too, but does not have the steeps that punctuate the northern leg of the Rabbit Valley 8, making it more enjoyable.
