Runner Notes

On this trail, there are several switchbacks with exposed roots, rocks, branches, and other obstacles. Be aware of these as they are dangerous for ankles.

Trailheads can be found on Delenka Lane, West View Drive, Shipley Drive, Palisades Crest Drive, and Stevens Meadows - off Atherton Drive.
