Flowy single track that connects Calero County Park and Canada del Oro park. The trail starts after a climb up Cottle Trail and is very different from the Cottle climb, which is double track. Once you get past the Cottle rest, the trail grade levels out and winds between the shaded oaks. It opens up a couple of times to offer vistas of the Almaden Valley and Mt. Hamilton.

 We dont get many trails in the Bay Area like this. 2.5 miles of flowy up hill with minimal grade. Barely need brakes on the way down. Great views.
