A wild and almost untouched nature trail.

Description

Exploring Vargas Plateau via Deer Gulch Trail, you find a cattle gate which lead to this trail. The trail has some short descents and a few short climbs. On the back of the trail, you can view Niles Canyon and Highway 84. This trail has a nice shaded section that's pretty peaceful but maybe creepy at the same time.
