Runner Notes

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

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

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