I did the trail backwards! Superrr pretty area. Make sure to bring a lot of water as there isn’t a lot of shade. The path is very wide all the way up, which makes social distancing when passing other people easy. Unfortunately, I turned around 1.5 miles from the top because there was a GIANT patch of ground bees blocking the trail (and I am NOT a bee person haha). There was another smaller patch of ground bees about .5 miles in as well, but I was able to run through that one. Would’ve been a nice fairly easy trail without the bees!

Absolutely stunning hike. Downhill most of the first half, which is super fun with tons of lush views. Steep and steady the whole way back, so be ready to work and replenish often.

Nice views and wide dirt road. Before the Woolsey fire, ticks were plentiful in the shoulder grasses, early in the year. FYI The Northern 1.1 mile section, indicated on this map, is called Bulldog Lateral somewhere else, with the 0.6 section above it, labeled here as Lookout Road, called Bulldog Motorway.
