Very sandy anywhere near the drainages. Views are fun and there is some shade, but summers are very hot. The return trip was done at a pretty quick clip. I didn't find the trail overly exciting, but it can be fun for a liesurely romp or a good way to work on your sand technique. My wife and I were all alone on a Saturday, except for a few bovine.

Like the previous review... sand, sand and more sand. My wife and I hit this trail but stayed to the bottom fork as we're are now just starting to ride. Heading uphill, we had to walk a couple of softer spots. We only had to time to go in about 3 miles and the return trip was an easy modest down hill. Mostly sandy-dirt with amny horse apples and hoof divets, otherwise smooth and sandy. There is some shade and the climbs are short and fairly easy. We parked at the south end of the golf coarse parking lot and it seemed to be ok. Not a bad ride if you want to practice your traction on an otherwise easy, low tech ride.

Lots of sand on the uphill climb, several sandy sections in the canyon, but downhill and easy; but if u don't like sand, then stay away. Great views from several places on the ridgeline. Downhill on the singletrack is very steep in sections. Next to an old watertank at the top of the canyon are a couple picnic benches that make a nice place to kick back. In the canyon, there are some singletrack trails branching off the fireroad. Some are deep sand so be cautious. I don't know if any of these singletrack diversions are real trails, but I have never seen any blocked off. One of these, which is to the right of the trail in a canyon meadow right after a long sandy section (it is unmarked) leads to the creek and has a few fun crossings. Creek normally runs year round, but during very dry years...
I would rate this trail 4 for the views, downhill track, and creek crossings; but only 2 for the sand. But it is right out my door, so I consider it my home trail. Watch for the occasional hiker and horseback rider. Be respectful. There are no trail restrictions for bikers, and keeping it that way would be delightful.

Go up the fireroad next to Rustic golf course. After park entrance gate stay to right to go up the hill. Follow fireroad along the ridge until you come to an obvious trail on the left. Down this fun bit of singletrack to the canyon fireroad and back to the park entrance. Just before the beginning of the golf course, take the fork to the right, follow the singletrack to a parking lot, take the fireroad that drops down and across the golf course back to the parking lot where you left your car.
