“This is a gradual 6-mile climb to Nordhoff Ridge Road.”— John McKinney
Gridley Springs is about 2.8 miles along the trail and makes for a nice rest. North of Gridley Springs, the trail narrows from a dirt road into a trail and enters an eastern fork of Gridley Canyon. The trail follows switchbacks past bay trees and the sedimentary rocks of the Topatopa Mountains. Gridley Trail ends at Gridley Saddle on Nordhoff Ridge Road.
