“A run with steep climbs to ridgetop views through shaded canyons on narrow doubletrack.”— Bob Gardner
Cross the road to continue on the Seaview Trail, which is a fire road at this point, climbing steadily to the junction with the Quarry Trail. Continue on Seaview as it turns east past the junction with the Lower Big Springs Trail. The trail climbs gradually and is shaded in the lower section but becomes steeper, rockier and more exposed as it approaches the ridgetop viewpoint. Some sections are very steep.
There's a rest bench at the high point with breathtaking views over the Bay. It's a short descent to the junction with the Upper Big Springs Trail which continues the descent over a rocky, rutted fire road all the way to South Park Drive.
A little further on South Park Drive, catch the start of the Quarry Trail for the return to Inspiration Point. There's a junction part way with the Lower Big Springs Trail which connects to the Seaview Trail or you continue on Quarry as in turns west then north (steeply) back to Seaview.
