DescriptionThe Espinosa trail follows the contours of Secret Canyon located in the Cleveland National Forest. Head into the canyon from the parking lot by following the FS road downhill until you see signs for the trail on the right. You'll make a steep descent until you reach the Pine Valley Creek (usually dry). Follow the trail until you reach the Pine Valley Wilderness area. Here you can decide to continue on Espinosa or Secret Canyon Trail. There are no bikes allowed on this trail, so come ready to run or hike. Bring plenty of water, it's exposed and can be hot. Check the map at the trailhead if you'd like to complete the big loop, approx. 14 miles.
