This system has a new trail, the Ridge Trail which runs below the top ridge of the mountain on it's west side. There is also a new singletrack from the parking lot and new parking lot farther east down the dirt road paralleling I-8.
The new trail is smoother and less tech than the older trails but climbs and descends many times in the loop giving it a fun flow. * Review edited New access from I-10. South from interstate on Sunland Gin and west on Arica to parking.
Best tool for cholla cactus is a comb.
