Description

Start at the first parking lot for Rancho San Antonio. Cross the bridge at the main trailhead and start climbing straight up the gravel fire road. Turn left at the next junction towards the iron fence. Continue onwards, climbing up and up. There are some short descents thrown in the mix, but all must be gained again with steep climbs. There are great views at the end where a bench awaits your tired legs.

Flora & Fauna

Quails, deer, and bobcats.
