A good option worth checking out for those that like steep terrain, and that don't mind the climb up to this portion of the Valleycliffe trail network. To access the trail, start descending on White Bronco before making the turn at a right fork for Southside.

Like many Valleycliffe trails, there are a few times the trail splits as you descend. Stick to the most traveled option and you should be fine.

Access Info

Getting to the top of the FM tower isn't enjoyable from any direction. The best option might be Pipeline/Doggy Style, or alternatively pushing up Mountain Of Phlegm.
