This is the trail I use when I want to kick my own butt. The first part is called burn out hill. The Pilot Rock Fire Camp uses it for training and exercise. Up top you follow the dirt roads, best to go mid week and not during the summer (too hot, too many motorcycles and way too many rattle snakes). The old path is kind of hard to find and you might want to use hiking poles for the down hill. Once you hit the lake it is an easy breezy hike back to the bottom of burn out hill.
