“This newer trail for hiking and mountain biking is fun, challenging, and beautiful.”— Glenn Ladehoff
The contours spill out onto a grassy plain that heads down to the creek where you can cross into the Hackberry Campground and hook up with the Kiowa Trail or end up in the Givens, Spicer & Lowry Trail Trailhead.
Or, you can continue on and start some switchbacks that bring you back up to the canyon wall where you'll find more contour hiking with a few short ups and downs. There is another switchback waiting, and then a little more contouring trail and you'll end up at Comanche Trail Mid where you can continue on with a left turn or you can head to the Chinaberry Parking with a right turn.
This is an amazingly fun trail, but yet still challenging. It can be done north to south or south to north and it can be split into two sections depending on where you start and has three access points.
