Author Full Detail Guide
Overview: Relatively short connector trail between the Sunset Trailhead and the Brookbank Trail. Little Gnarly is not part of the official FS trail system due to it crossing private land. The private land is open to public use, and sees a heavy amount of mountain bike and hiking use. Little Gnarly crosses the edge of the beautiful meadows of the Dry Lake Hills
