Trail shared by Tilman Giese

A very steep fire road with access to the Ridgeline Trail.

Description

This trail is a fire road that starts out with a very steep ascent up the hill. The reward is a great view across Lake Del Valle and the surrounding hills. Soon enough, the trail descends again steeply to cross a small creek bed and ascends back up to Ridgeline Trail.
