Description

This trail branches off the Coast to Crest Trail about 2.5 miles from the Campo Seco Staging Area. Pass the cattle gate and follow the wide trail as it gently descends towards Lawry Gulch. Cross the dry creek and start ascending again. After about 1 mile, the trail turns sharply right, to your left is a short spur trail that leads to an excellent viewpoint.

Continue around the southern flank of John Bull Peak. When you reach another cattle gate at 1.6 miles, there is another spur trail that leads right to the top. Continue ahead through the gate. Make another right turn at 2 miles onto a very wide and rough cattle road. Keep on following the road until you rejoin the Coast to Crest Trail at 2.5 miles.
