Foot traffic only - (All other trails in Mount Falcon park are open to bikes).

Description

For runners, this is the preferred route up or down Mount Falcon. While Castle Trail is exposed and open to bikes, this trail is much more shaded, a bit less steep, and only open to foot traffic. It is still long climb, and you'll reconnect with Castle Trail soon for the final push to the upper trails.
