    CAL FIRE

Sulphur is the second most common way people ride up to the Ridge Trail (where you can conveniently do Brail and Flow). It's a fire road that has a good pitch a third of the way up where it connects to Corral Rd and a pitch at the end just before it opens up to the upper Helipad. People may come down it, but as a fire road there is not much to it and since it is pretty wide, trail conflicts are mitigated.
