A tree-covered trail in the beginning, leading to an open and airy hillside.

Description

From the treeline, pick the steep switchback that goes up and to the right into the trees in between Marshall Road to the A-Frame and Rumbling Paddoka. This is my favorite warm up trail. The trail rises steep, levels out then rises quickly again between the trees to the A-Frame or East Tower for a great view of the whole Lagoon from the east and beautiful Vaca Valley.

Flora & Fauna

Tree covered, may have poison oak as well.

1st Tower with a view of Vaca Valley facing I-80. Amazing view in the winter, when everything is green!
