Trail shared by John McKinney

A moderately easy trail up to nowhere.

Features Views

Family Friendly Easy grade with cool features.

Description

The trail starts from a gate and heads north up the dirt road. The dirt road is well graded but a little steep in places. At 1.6 miles is the start of the first tunnel which is more than 1000 feet long. After the first tunnel, the trail narrows some before reaching the second tunnel at 2.6 miles. The trail ends at the end of the second tunnel. Do not try to proceed further; there are better viewpoints if you backtrack.

Thanks to John McKinney, The Trailmaster, for sharing this trail description. To learn more about trails in California, check out his guides at The Trailmaster Store.

Flora & Fauna

There is little flora or fauna to see on the steep walls along this road. However, plants and animals common to the area might still be spotted, including wildflowers in the spring, squirrels, birds, bobcats or if you're lucky bighorn sheep.
