This trail system is like Arkansas Hills Lite. The hills aren't as steep here as they are right out of Salida, the rocks aren't as gnarly, and there isn't as many miles of trails. However, the ecosystem is essentially the same as that of the Arkansas Hills, just located a bit further up river. So, the views are similar, the trees and vegetation are similar, the sandy soil and rocks are even similar. If only this trail system had more mileage, it would be well-worth a regular drive up from Salida to shred!
Note: these trails can be combined with the Whipple trail system via the Midland trail.
