This is a multi-use area, please respect other users. Bikes yield to hikers yield to horses.
Leave the road and head down an old abandoned jeep trail until you cross the creek and go up a short tough climb that takes you to the singletrack. It's technical at first and takes you to a sandy section with a short and very steep climb.
From there you are up on a bench with smooth singletrack and several creek crossings. These lead you to the Crystal Hill, a spectacular side cut that suns along a hill completely covered with Calcite Crystal. Stop and look around but please don't walk on the crystals. There is a rocky descent with several short ledges from there back to the old road. At the road, turn right to head further out or left to make a short hike back to the trailhead.
