Description

This is a fun little trail to use to enter McDowell Mountain Park, or use it as an easy climb out. It is smooth with hardly a rocks until you get close to Pemberton Trail.

The top part the trail can see quite a bit of traffic on weekends as it connects with the Marcus Landslide Trail, a popular interpretive trail.
