“A good climb with rolling descents and beautiful views.”— Garritt Cusack
After reaching the top of Wilder Ridge you start your descent along the fence line of the dump, but you'll still be over looking the ocean. Don't worry it doesn't stink!
After a couple hundred yards, the trail really starts ripping with more open sight lines through the grass. Once you've sort of leveled out towards Hwy 1, you start some undulating climbs and descents along a drainage through the park.
Wilder Ridge Loop provides many options as a loop connector route allowing you to access the Twin Oaks Trail, Zane Gray Cutoff, Enchanted Loop, Baldwin Loop, and more.
