“A short, steep climb followed by a steady, winding downhill to the west side of the ranch.
— Kevin Fox
Like the rest of Los Flores Ranch it is only open Thursday - Sunday and you must use the Dominion Road access. Check the website
for current open times.
The Cut-Off Trail starts as a hard left turn while climbing out of the Valley View area. The doubletrack climbs gently at first but gets significantly steeper as you get closer to the ridge. Look across the Ridge Top Trail
for the beginning of the descent. From here, the trail heads steadily downhill, passing a junction with the Red Tail Trail
before coming to it end.
