Lawnmower Saddle is a fun ride that travels from Rubber Ducky to Lawnmower. It is called a saddle because the trail creates a reverse U—a kind of hump—meaning you ride one trail up to the top of the hump and another trail down the other side, just as if you were riding on a saddle. The trail climbs up Rubber Ducky for a short distance before heading to the left on a trail called Wounded Knee. From the parking lot, pull out onto Castalia Street and turn left heading to Cottonwood Drive. Turn left again and follow Cottonwood Drive. A right turn on Cerrito Street will lead you to the trailhead at the top of the hill. Cerrito Street is a bit of a climb and you’ll know you’ve found the trailhead when asphalt turns to dirt.
