Access road climbing into the middle of the Diamondhead zone from the parking area at the bottom of Half Nelson. Pretty chill moderate climb until the switchback where it gets steeper and the water bars start. It's all ride-able, shuttling is frowned upon. Provides access to loads of different possible laps.

Access Info

Off of Garibaldi Park Rd, which can get a little beat up but is drive-able in any vehicle with a bit of caution.

       Not meant to drive up, shuttle access via Girabaldi Park Road.

       It's a road. Why can't you shuttle it?

       Well it's a logging road so you can do whatever you want. It's also an incredibly highly trafficked road for pedaling that's too narrow for a vehicle to pass someone pedaling without them pulling over. It's also faster to pedal if you're in mildly decent shape.
