Trail shared by Chris McNamara

A great first time hike that connects the bottom of Angora Ridge to the Gunmount at Highway 50.

Description

This is an easy trail without much climbing. It's mostly singletrack with a few sections of fire road. You can start at the end of Forest Mountain Road or Mule Deer. The Mule Deer start takes out a fun switchback descent at the beginning (but saves you climbing back out). The route is mostly obvious, but there are some confusing side trails near the neighborhoods.
