This is a great beginners trail. From the trailhead, you'll get onto the singletrack and follow this all the way until you get the the cattle guards. Cross over these and look to join the singletrack on your left again.
At mile three, you'll come to a fork. Going right takes you up Afterthought
, which is fun but come back to that another time. Instead, go straight until you go all the way to Golden Pond.
