Better than dust in your lungs!
This is a newer (as of December 2012) trail that parallels FR152. It is a route to take to get to the trailheads for various Red Rocks/Secret Mountain Wilderness trailheads rather than using FR 152 and inhaling dust as the tour jeeps pass by.
This trail was likely sanctioned because of a need for an alternative to FR152 for hikers and bikers.
This trail can be formally accessed at four trailheads: proximate to the Dry Creek Road/FR152 trailhead, the Chuckwagon trailhead, the Long Canyon trailhead, and the Brins Mesa trailhead.
This trail has been promoted as a mountain biking trail and so is frequently used by mountain bikers.
There are a couple of creek beds that may possibly run with water after a good rain.
Camping is not allowed along this trail, but camping areas can be accessed through the Secret Canyon trailhead further north of the Brins Mesa trailhead (1.2 miles via FR 152).
