“This trail offers great views of Valle Grande from the shoulder of Redondo Peak.”— Lost Justpastnowhere
This is a little-used doubletrack that is already becoming a singletrack in places and is on the way there along the rest of the route. The initial climb is a little difficult, especially considering the overall altitude, but after that, it's a gentle descent before you plunge down to the valley level.
The trail is suffering from the effects of a forest fire in 2013. Although the NPS has cleared a lot of fallen trees, new ones seem to have fallen and there are a number of dead trees yet to fall. Expect to find a number of fallen trees for the foreseeable future. Also, there are a couple creek crossings that have been washed out where you'll want to watch your footing.
