“A rugged forest service road with access to FSR 379A to climb to Almagre Mountain South Summit.”— K Keiter
FSR 379 is open to motorized vehicles, so foot traffic needs to be alert. With that said, most users are runner-friendly and slow down to not spit rocks from tires and even offer waves, smiles, and, at times, window chats.
From the trailhead, FSR 379 gradually ascends for about 0.6 miles to a clearing that overlooks Jones Park. From the overlook, the trail takes a hard left and starts to meander and gain more elevation along the edge of timbers. Deer Park, noted by its wetlands, is about 1.3 miles down the road after it starts to swing around to the north. Soon after passing Deer Park, is another clearing that comprises the intersection of FSR 379A.
Past the junction with FSR 379A, the trails continues for at a fairly level grade for about two miles before a short, steep descent to FSR 376.
