Summary:
Love this short trail. Can't believe it's just in my front yard. The trail is situated way below the street level. Lots of senior hikers even at 6 am. They're all friendly though. Only saw a couple other MB riders. Interesting steep trails, one part will take way up next to a steep ravine, if you're not careful you can fall off. Hidden behind thick bushes and trees is a stream.

Recommended Route:
start at Rinaldi up the trail and enjoy the downhill on your way back.

Summary:
the trail is whatever you make it, you can bomb it and haul or go slow
it's pretty fun crossing the creek, the rain forced some spots to be closed, but nothing where you have to go out of your way to get around it, there's a treeswing at the end of the trail and it's over the creek so you can mess around there after yer done riding, it's difficult to say how hard this trail is, a beginner can do it, but expirienced riders will still have a blast riding it, so i'll just say 3 for technical and aerobic difficulty, and it's short and not much up hill so i'll say a 4 for overall
I hope this helped you guys out,

Recommended Route:
go to the top of Reseda until you get to sesnon, it starts at the southwest corner

Summary:
i ride this trail about 3-5 times a week. its pretty fun but after the storm, many ditches had formed so there are deep holes.. watch out for them. i almost killed my XTR derauiller by falling in one.. some are up to 1.5 foot deep! 2 rivers. one tiny one. 1 bigger.. if u go on the left. its possible to ride in the river. only about 10 inches deep max.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
there is one next to the gas comapny.. behind the porter ranch highlands gated homes. another one is a little higher than Reseda and calle vista. one on the left that leads to middle of limekiln trail.trail is closed because its been damaged by the flood. many mud slides blocking the way but its fun to hop over them. realy muddy up there. lots of fun! and right next to tennis courts, reseda and calle vista, there is one. but many horses go there so poop gets on ur tires! dont go there on rainy days. ull be soaked in horse pee

Summary:
Short trail, lots of hikers during the weekends. You can stay on the trail by going under Rinaldi, where the tunnel is. (As well as the 118). Takes anywhere from 10-45 minutes to get down to Chatsworth, depending on conditions and your experience.

Recommended Route:
EB/WB 118, exit Tampa. Head north on Tampa until it ends at Sesnon. Park in the cul-de-sac, and the trail begins at the Southwest corner of Tampa and Rinaldi.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
All the trails in this area are fairly short. Go to Rocky Peak or Kana for more fun.
