Trail ML

Trail ML (Mechero Lado (Side Burner)) is dirt road that runs east/west along the south side of the upper portion of the major ridge of the San Felipe area trails (i.e. the ridge capped by Trail HFR (High Flyer Ridge)). Probably a remnant of the construction of the high-voltage power line that runs along this ridge (e.g. electrical towers waypointed in Trails HFR, LLL, and Ma), this road no longer sees hardly any auto traffic and remains in good shape. Harder to get to the east side of the trail (via Trail M (Mechero (Burner))) than the western side (via Trail T (Tostadora (Toaster)), it’s generally used for acces Trail E (Encendero (Lighter), the lower 2/3rds of Trails T or M. Nonetheless, those looking for a good climb may access Trail ML via a climb up Trail M, before returning the way they came or using Trail T (uphill or downhill) or Trail E for exits. An overgrown goat trail drops down from the west end of Trail ML, which in due time may be groomed&pruned into an extension of Trail ML or a new trail in its own right.
