Great loop trail. Started at Gridley trailhead. At junction less than a mile up took left a couple miles over to Pratt. Up to Nordhodf Ridge, right a mile to summit Nordhoff Peak then another mile to Gridley back down. Switched to Komoot for GPS as it is a better mileage tracker on the fly. 14.65 miles total.
Easy trail, highly populated. Started at Pratt Trailhead and stayed on Pratt to Fox Canyon, took that down to Shelf Rd and back to the trailhead. Also have taken Pratt up to Nordhoff Tower which is a nice hike, not many people. Great views that way.
Hiked the Pratt Trail → to Firebreak Rd → to Gridley Rd. → to Valley View/Shelf Rd. Began the hike at 7:45 am and finished the in 3.5 hours. The Pratt Trail is very rocky and works the legs and the Firebreak Rd. is hilly. Great hike!
