This preserve named for Peg and Gus Carlson starts off the dirt Sims Lane to climb the hills to the east for short wooded loop options.


I missed the first trailhead driving to the end of Sims Lane and starting on the far end of the blue trail.  The start is a rocky wet climb up what is most likely and old continuation of the road long since abandoned.  There is a great view of an earthship off on private property.

The trail turns to the right uphill crossing a small stream and continues uphill.  After working across the rocky ledges the red loop continues off to the east.  Following the hill it returns along old stonewalls.

I returned along the white trail.  There is a small memorial plaque where the blue and white trails meet.
