Category: Trail Info

Trails are logically distinct components. A trail can be ten meters long or 100,000 meters. Trail Info category indicates a post that has detailed specific information describing a particular trail. For posts describing a suggested route that uses one or more trails, use the Ride Route category INSTEAD.

Trail A

Trail A (Abuela (Grandmother)) is a short section of jeep trail/ doubletrack that cuts between the south end of Trail WFR (West Frontage Road) and where Trail ED (Espina D) climbs back out of the western valley it comes down into from the top of Rojo Runout Peak. Useful for cutting out the top of Trail ED (either to ride only the top of Trail ED and return to Trail WFR via Trail A, or to skip the top of Trail ED.

Outing – 2012-10-22 Ride (CM in Trouble)

Today’s ride was quick run of Trails TTT, RR, Es, ED, A and CM (~14km). The wild flowers are blooming all over, big areas of what appear to be wild marigolds/chrysanthemums? casting the trailside in yellows, oranges and golds. Other flowers of purple, red and white mixed in for good measure.

Here are some (lousy) photos.


Also, Trail CM is getting some “work” done on it. I.e. a bulldozer was working the eastern side of the singletrack section turning it into a “road.” Also, at one of the creekcrossings somebody has excavated a trench across the road, clearing out the rainy season’s sediment and plopping the excavated dirt across the road on the western side of the trench. It looks like a bridge may be coming, but for now, it’s a hike-a-bike section. Both of these trail issues are noted with placemarks/waypoints on the map below.
