"The hike heads up and down rocky hills through a shrubby forest and over a couple of knobby bridges before coming to an overlook of a small creek, which is dry if there hasn’t been any recent rain. The narrow trail is shared with mountain bikers, who are challenged by the sharp turns and some of the steep slopes here. Prickly pear cacti line the trail in many sections, adding to the degree of difficulty. It’s easy to drive past the small parking lot, which holds only six or so cars or a couple of horse trailers, but this trail is growing in popularity as hikers look for a more secluded option to the busy North Shore Trail where mountain bikers crowd the trail on sunny weekends. Local horseback riders maintain the trail, and horses get the right-of-way. As on other trails where hikers meet up with horses, it’s important to say hello in a normal conversational voice as horses and their riders approach so as to not spook the horse." Read more

"West of Grapevine Lake, this trail roughly traces Denton Creek on a pleasant trek through impressive stands of cactus and wildflowers. A bench atop a wildflower-covered hill awaits you at its end." Read more

This is a great trail with some nice hills and some flat sections. Beautiful wildflowers in the spring. It is well maintained and easily accessible.
