A birds eye view of the area with the Burma Road snaking down the middle. I snapped this picture one day whilst flying out on a commercial Aircraft.
After the Spring new regulations were put in to action to regulate the trail uses and encourage natural weed growth in some areas
Spring is here and trails and views are spectacular all round. The trail in the middle is the Burma road, the pine trees on the center mound is known as the Eagles Nest.
The trails start at the top of the Burma road has been a popular launch sight with parasail enthusiasts
A Perfect day!
Follow the Leader!
Watch out for rocks
The trails are popular with both Walkers/Hikers, Mountain Bikers and Horseback riders

As always watch out for Rattle Snakes in the summer. This one was about 4 foot long and about 3 inches in diameter with a very short rattle and was seen up in the Eagles Nest area under the pine trees.
This shot was seconds before Taj took a big fall (second rider) . His rear tire blew and he went down. Fortunately only big bruises and no broken bones.
For Bill & Taj its a slow walk back up the hill to take the long walk back up to Crenshaw and Del Cerro park
