Trail shared by Lance Buck

An adventure on rugged isolated trail.

Description

Look for an open meadow just east of the saddle. Work your way downhill toward the bottom of the drainage. Just past a small vernal pool the track starts to take shape.

Stay on the east side. The trail starts as a deer path and gets better and better the father down you go. Roughly halfway down the canyon, you'll want to stay to the left for a longer run on singletrack. The valley opens up on small farm patches and rolls across a creek bed several times. The crossings are easy to navigate, but there are short bumps up and out of the drainage.

Before long, the trail runs into the Berryessa-Knoxville Road.
