Runner Notes

Shared with bikes, this wide, gravel trail has a good climb up to Holter Ridge for an out-and-back, or for an epic loop using Holter Ridge Trail, Bald Hills Road, Lady Bird Johnson Grove Trail, Berry Glen Trail, and Off Highway Trail back to Geneva Road, coming in around 20 miles with upwards of 3,000' of elevation gain.

Description

This trail starts off Hwy 101 north of Berry Glenn at the Lost Man Creek picnic and parking area, which lies at the end of Geneva Road. It heads east gradually along Lost Man Creek.

After a little over a mile, the trail will begin its ascent up the contours of the hills above the creek, gaining elevation quickly at times (~30% grade) until it tops out at Holter Ridge and the intersection with the Holter Ridge Trail.

Be aware, this trail is open to bikes.
