The trail is open all year-round but may be muddy after winter rains and can be quite hot in the summer months. Watch out for poison oak, ticks, and rattlesnakes.

Description

From the end of the Sterling Mine Ditch Trail on the south side of Grub Gulch, the Grub Gulch Access Trail climbs several long switchbacks away from the ditch. The trail surface is clear, not rocky or root-filled, and well-maintained. The trail weaves through Ponderosa pines and mixed forest, oaks and grasslands, chaparral, and mature forest.

After about 1.5 miles, the trail reverts to abandoned BLM Road 39-2-3.1 (open, brush-free, and easy to hike on), then reaches a junction at 2.8 miles with BLM Road 39-2-3. Going left here puts you on the Jack-Ash Trail while going right takes you up a lovely shaded section of the BLM Road 39-2-3 (a section that is shared with the Jack-Ash Trail) to the Grub Gulch Trailhead on BLM Road 39-2-26.
