Used this route in reverse from Sheldon Road entrance and combined it with the Lexington Vista Trail. Skipped the steep exposed section to Montevina. Made it more pleasant with the uphill at the start. No parking on Sheldon so need to find a spot on Overlook or below.

Great view the whole way. Challenging but do-able. Lots of small slipped rocks to walk on. Very secluded and lightly trafficked. Minimal shade here and there. No where to stop and rest. Bring lots of water!

Start at the top of Montevina Rd . Great views of Lexington and the Coastal range early on.Kind of a reverse hike where you start at the top and go to the bottom.
