Description

Start out at the Linwood Rd parking lot and head off to the trailhead. When you come to a fork, head to the right to go up the Backside Trail. It's mostly a doubletrack gravel access road with some very steep climbs. When you get close to the end, around 370 steps made of wooden timbers lead to the top.
