Overview

Features: Views — Wildlife [Add/Remove]
Dogs: Off-leash

Runner Notes [Suggest Changes]

Steep and rocky grades and 1,300+ elevation change in 1.6 miles makes for a tough run no matter which way you take this one.

Description [Suggest Changes]

From the upper trailhead, the path descends into the canyon on steep grades. At 0.9mi the trail meets T234A (an alternate route down the West Side Rd) and follows a ridge to the lower TH on West Side Rd.

Flora & Fauna [Suggest Changes]

Ponderosa pines typical of the higher areas of the Sacramento Mountains.
