Trail Description
About this trail
Directions are the same for the start of the Coyote or Chamisoso Trails. Either of these trails, along with FS 462 may be used as the out leg with the Mighty Mule as the back leg. While descending on Chamisoso Trail, there will be a three-way intersection with Mighty Mule marked with a tall wooden post. Chamisoso head down while Mighty Mule keeps traversing around the north flank of Cedro Peak. The trail roller-coasters in through a number of drainages on mostly loose, rocky tread. Eventuall the trail will T into the powereline trail which can be taken back to the start.

Review: Actually 2 parts to Mighty Mule. The section W of Forest Rd 13 is a rock filled workout, while the section E of FR 13 is a lot more fun. Bermed turns, gentler grade.

Review: This trail is somewhat rough and requires a little more commitment than just Coyote or Chamisoso. Some of the entrances/exits from the drainages are loose and steep and may cause intermediates to dismount. What makes it unique and interesting is it's position on the steep north slope of Cedro Peak. Since this area doesn't dry out as fast, the woods are thicker and darker, making this a good choice on a sunny day. It can also be used to add mileage and some more climbing if you've got the legs and the lungs for it. It's probably not the best trail in the area, but it's a nice addition to the avalailable variety. It's also closed to motos.
