A single-track which climbs to the ridge and then drops back down to either the Cold Stream Trail or the Green Valley Fire Road depending on which trail head you enter. As promised by the name, the trail made a short uphill ascent, then traveled down the other side of small hill.This stretch of trail was more narrow than any of the previous sections had been, with thick California Lilac on either side.

Access Info

East of San Diego, the park is on Highway 79, five miles north of I-8.
