This is a great hike if your looking for a good workout and have done the Heart Rock hike so many times that your looking for a good alternative. This hike starts at the trail head for Heart Rock but instead follow the paved service road up. The dirt trail begins when you hit the sewer plant it will be to the left. From there you go "UP". This is where the workout begins. Follow the trail all the way to Cedarpines Park. from there follow the roads out until you hit another dirt trail taking you the last little hike up. There you come to a large set of boulders, perfect to take a long earned rest. From there follow the paved road down until you hit a dirt road on the right. There you follow a ridge down with views of VOE. Just keep going until you came back from where you started.
