Connects the East Ridge trail (coming from the parking lot on La Honda or from the Ranch House) to Upper Sage or the Stanley Peak trail. Can also connect with Caballo to go to the Humane Society parking lot. Single track options on Quail Run or Coyote Run.

There's some moderate climbing to get up to the Stanley Peak trail, and it's a popular trail for horseback riding. Make your presence known and don't sneak up on any equestrians unless you want a kick in the teeth from the horse and an earful from the rider.

       One of the better ways to enter Daley Ranch from La Honda. It is popular with hikers especially on weekends so be courteous.
