Highlights

Highlight: Barnwell Mountain Recreation Area: We Show
We Show is the shortest "trail" in BMRA - effectively a connector trail rounding off the northeast corner of Omega. We Show also offers a unique opportunity to add a level of difficulty in an otherwise minimal obstacle on Omega. By exiting We Show and driving south on Omega, one positions their vehicle in such a precarious position to require the use of lockers and suspend their vehicle across diagonal points. If you're looking for a brief rise in heart rate, try running We Show - and don't be fooled by its otherwise innocence of length.

Directions to Trailhead

Starting Point: Omega

Enter and exit We Show from Omega. Traversable from either direction, most enter We Show when traveling Omega in a clockwise direction. Travel .9 miles along Omega to find the western trailhead for We Show. We Show exits at the off camber obstacle for Omega. The easier exit will be to turn left on Omega. Turning right on Omega will result in nose diving on the deepest part of the rut and almost certainly require the use of lockers to get through the turn.
