Trail shared by Preston Jordan

A narrow singletrack in to the East Bay Plain, less than three miles from Fruitvale BART.

Description

Narrower than typical singletrack, at least for the East Bay, and generally a bit less engineered. The switchbacks at the eastern end are more engineered, but still so tight and with exposure.

This provides part of a mostly dirt connection from the East Bay Plain into, or even better out of, the hills along the entire western face of the East Bay Hills.
