“A great loop through Round Valley Regional Preserve.”— Coach Don Williams
You'll reach the halfway point right about the time you cross the saddle and start descending. Once you start your descent, you're mostly on open singletrack until you meet the Miwok Trail junction. At the junction, take a right onto Miwok Trail. From here, the trail is not always obvious as you can choose several singletracks that weave in and out (keep an eye on the Trail Run Project mobile app!), or take the fire road back to the parking lot.
There is some accessible water in creeks and drainages along the Miwok Trail that quickly dry up after rainy season.
