A typical access trail into Ridgemont. Rooty climb with plenty of easy switchbacks through the forest for the first section, and then up into an old cut block. Great down as well.

Access Info

Access from the new safe trailhead just behind the yellow gate on the junction of Old Stumpy and 13 Street.
