Need to Know
This is a multi-use parcel. Livestock may be present. Be aware of hunting seasons. Trail is located near a minimum security prison (you may hear the PA system). No restrooms. Cell coverage is good along most if not all of the trail.
This trail is a loop and can be ridden either direction and is part of the Serenity Trail: 4-Mile Loop
. Hikeing clockwise; the trail drops through a few draws but has steady and easy climbs to its highest point. Hikeing through the pine forest, you'll come to the Serenity Rocks. There are benches here, making a good place to stop and enjoy the scenery. The narrow track continues down the ridge. Don't build up too much speed. The junction with the Serenity Trail: 4-Mile Loop
is a left turn before you drop in the canyon as the trail goes along the wall.
The trail has moderate rock to go over and around providing some challenge with a steep drop off the side. After the dry creek crossing, it's an uphill pitch, use low gears. There are some large rock steps to push/carry your bike. Once at the top, take a moment to enjoy the view and catch your breath. It is a short, fast, winding track back to the trailhead.
The trail bed is packed sandy soil, it drains well after rain, but there may be loose patches. Rocks are periodic throughout the trail. This a good trail for beginning trail hikers to work on fundamentals and have fun.
