Connecting the KVR to the Hobo Jungle can be done by using this connector. It drops all your elevation via 4 round switchbacks.
It can be ridden up but it is quite a grunt.

Access Info

If accessing the KVR from the entrance at Vancouver Pl., simply ride up a couple hundred meters until you get to the railroad display (easily identified by the old cattle scoop). The turn off is just on the right of the display down the clay banks. Be aware, the area is frequently hiked by seniors and slept in by fruit pickers. There WILL be hobos living here during the summer months.

      Dry and a little overgrown. Hobos in the bush can be scary but should be harmless.
