Description

Best used in the downhill, northerly, direction into Tennessee Valley. From the junction with the Miwok Trail - Bunker Rd to Wolf Ridge, the trail starts fairly level crossing several wood bridges with nice views over Tennessee Valley out to the Pacific Ocean. Dropping from the ridge, it gets a little steeper with a few ruts and rocks. The lower section has been "improved" with a series of wood steps and stone drainage channels to reduce erosion. A couple switchbacks bring you to the bottom at the horse stables near the Tennessee Valley trailhead.

Keep a heads-up for horses and mountain bikes, especially on busy weekends.
