Overview: An interesting trail hike in an area that had previously been abused by motor vehicles. The forest service is trying to curb the activity. This hike is open to mountain bikes hiking and horses and is an urban hike as the valley is generally visible. Overlooked by many, there are few others on the trail. The trail starts off as a jeep road but quickly turns into singletrack. At the junction with Orohai Trail, a right turn will bring you to Keyhole Arch or the Packsaddle trailhead. Nice edge of town hike.
