Trail shared by Mike Vuytos

Rough and tough singletrack with a nice ending.

Description

This is a rough trail that is heavily used by the horseback crowd (at least the first half). It has multiple creek and stream crossings and is hard to follow at times, so use the Hiking Project mobile app to follow along. The last half, going down into Hermosa Creek Trail, is a pleasant descent through the ponderosas.
