From the trailhead take the powerline road north approximately .7 miles to the cattle gate. Once though the gate the entrance to the singletrack trail is on the right 100 yards ahead. After another mile or so the singletrack crosses the powerline road. To take the Rail X Loop take the singletrack that splits to the north approximately .7 miles after you cross over the powerline road. After almost two miles of riding north you will come to a dirt road called Edwin Road. Take this road to the west. You can either take Edwin Road about 2.5 miles to the windmill or turn off after approximately 1.5. This turn will take you to a singletrack trail that crosses over the road. Take the singletrack east to head back to Honeybee or west to go to the windmill. At the windmill you will start back east to honeybee. After you pass the windmill there are two options. Stay on main trail for a mix of singletrack and doubletrack. Take fork on left for a singletrack trail. Both meet up further down the trail. The singletrack on left isn't marked as well and can be hard to follow but is much more fun. After just over two miles the trail meets up with a doubletrack trail. Stay to the left. In less than a mile you will come to a fork in the doubletrack. Stay left to loop back to Honeybee Canyon loop. When you get to the four way junction, take the singletrack to your right. After a few more miles the singletrack trail will meet back up with the powerline road once again. Turn right to head back to the gate or left to take the singletrack you started on back to the gate.
