Upper Rim (312) on the USFS printed map at the trailhead at Gate 5, is indicated by the first trail marker near the kiosk. The only "technical" section of this trail is immediately after the trailhead. They are two small rocky sections. Turn left at the first intersection. Follow the loop clockwise along the rim of Martinez Creek Canyon over occasional rocky outcrops, roots and short steep sections. The views are quite nice and well worth it. At the junction with Creek (311), take a right to return through a cool pine forest on undulating grades to the junction with Newt Jack (305). A right, continuing clockwise, will return to the trailhead.

Access Info
