Girl Scout (Easy) Professional Reviews and Guides

"This ride is a fun loop that starts and ends at the parking lot just below the restrooms. It combines a very popular trail with another meant as a beginner’s downhill trail, adding a nice easy fun ride in between. The trail is perfect for intermediate to advanced riders because it has some very technical spots that make the loop a challenging and fun ride.

The ride begins by heading up the dirt road to the trailhead. The entrance can easily be seen to the left of the road at the point where the telephone pole and the road meet. When you see the trail that cuts out from the road, follow it to the right. The beginning of the trail is often called the “rock garden” because it is filled with all manner of rock obstacles, some small, some fairly large."

"This is one of the most popular trails in all of Bootleg Canyon. It offers wonderful views of the canyon as well as many of the bootlegging artifacts that gave the canyon its name.

The first part of the ride requires a bit of climbing over one of the most technical trails in the canyon. The second portion is high on the canyon walls, providing some great scenic views. Make sure to take the time to explore some of the bootlegging artifacts purposely left in the canyon."

"Like many of the rides in Bootleg Canyon, the Girl Scout/West Leg/Mother Loop is actually made up of three different trails: Girl Scout, West Leg, and Mother—the first trail created in Bootleg Canyon."

"This combination of trails presents a very technically challenging ride that is more suited to intermediate and advanced riders. It combines two of the most popular trails in Bootleg Canyon with the canyon’s original trail, adding a nice easy gradual downhill, followed by a quick, but easy climb back to the trailhead. This long ride will challenge the legs of even the best of riders, as a great majority of the ride is a climb.

The ride begins by riding up the dirt road to the trailhead. The entrance can easily be seen to the left of the road at the point where the telephone pole and the road meet. When you see the trail that cuts out from the road, follow it to the right."

"This trail is one of the most popular rides in Bootleg Canyon, mainly because it offers some of the most wonderful views of the canyon as well as many of the bootlegging artifacts that give the canyon its name. Girl Scout is a challenging technical trail that is an uphill climb all the way—rewarded by a fun downhill ride back to the trailhead. This is a trail, however, that definitely requires shin guards.

If you’re looking for remnants of a time when bootleg alcohol was stilled in rocky crevices, giving the canyon its name, then this is the ride for you. A little more than half a mile into the ride you can see a cave-like formation with a rusted stove pipe protruding upward through the rock. During Prohibition, it was common for bootleggers to blast holes in rocks large enough to house a still, thus keeping it out of view and away from prying eyes."

"The Girl Scout/Caldera to West Leg Loop is a bit longer, but less technical than the Girl Scout/Inner Caldera to East Leg Loop. However, it still offers a very enjoyable and challenging ride. In fact, this loop combines two of the most popular trails in Bootleg Canyon and adds an enjoyable middle stretch to create one of the longest rides in the entire canyon.
