Expect a steep and challenging climb for about 100 yards. At first intersection, stay to the right (talking loop trail to the left is VERY steep.) There will be a short, very steep section followed by a level section for a 1/4 mile. The rest of the trail is nice singletrack with some switchbacks up the grassy hill and cows grazing all around.

At the top of the climb, you can either loop back around to the start of the Boccardo Trail, turn right onto Sierra Vista Trail, or pedal another quarter mile up to the scenic viewpoint.

Access Info

You can access this trail by riding up the Todd Quick trail.
