Description

This fire road climbs or drops in steep steps depending upon which direction you run. With a southern exposure and few trees, it can be glorious in the right weather and hellish in the wrong. Part of the Bay Area Ridge Trail through the East Bay Municipal Water District's Pinole watershed that just became legal on 16 July 2018.
