“A climb up from the Juan Bautista de Anza Trail to the surrounding hills.”— David Hitchcock
The Wild Rye Trail is narrow, singletrack at the bottom although it widens up at the top.
From here, you can return via the Wild Rye Trail, or take the Paseo del Roble Trail to the right and descend to Arastradero Lake and then loop back to your car via the Juan Bautista de Anza Trail.
