Venezia Trail #381

Named for a mine and former town site, the Venezia Trail connects Senator Highway in Crooks Canyon and the Ash Creek Ridge. Winding through ponderosa pine and Gambel oak, this shaded trail is in a part of the Bradshaw Mountains that also contains maple trees that put on a great show of color during the autumn.  This 1.5 mile trail can be part of motorized and non-motorized trail loops making it a great destination for trail users of all stripes, though equestrians may prefer area trails that exclude motorized use.  It begins at Forest Road 52 Venezia Site and ends at Forest Road 70.
