Turn left into the Mission Lakes Country Club Entrance. Follow the street all the way to the end. Striaght ahead should be the Driving Range. Park on the street next to the driving Range. Facing the Driving range (West) you should see a trail that leads you out along the side of it.
Follow that trail to the end of the range and turn right. You should see a hill with a trail coming down. At the base of hill turn and ride West. Continue riding west staying on the trail closest to the hill. You will then see a trail that turns North. You will know you are going the right way if you see an aquaduct check platform. Continue up through the Canyon through soft sand. You will eventually see a trail on your right heading to the top of the hill. Once you are on the ridge it gets fun. Follow the ridge back to your vehicle.
