Park at Dixie Canyon and bottom of Newcomb before the no parking signs. Walk up to the end of Dixie and you'll see the road block to the fire road. Mostly dirt. This is a short fire road climb. Nice views. Ends at top at Beverly Ranch. Cool sand stone rock. Easy climb.

The fire road described in the Getting There section is *not* correct. Yes, there's a fire road accessable, but the trail is where dixie canyon dead ends. There are posted signs. I parked on the street before the last intersection where the road narrows and makes it hard to park.
Now, the trail! It clearly didn't match the trail posted on this website. The start point and turns are wrong unless you make a hard left up a cliff, for example. Maybe they came down that way? Its confusing with lots of side trails to get lost on. Keep your GPS handy just in case. The trail is unmaintained and overgrown and i had to cross a mud bog on some sticks another hiker had put there(thank you!). Eroded trail. I was glad I had hiking poles to help navigate and not lose footing. Nobody else on the trail. Ill go again when I have more time.

I wouldn’t call this easy. My friend and I somehow ended up off the trail because the it is not clear, and we had to climb up the side of the mountain to get back to the trail. It was very adventurous, if that’s what you’re looking for. Also, there was not a soul out there, so that was nice.

Did this shady trail on a hot day. Parking is limited street parking on a residential street at the top end of Dixie Canyon. The trail is not maintained and was almost completely overgrown once you make your way up the first incline, about 5 minutes in. Overgrowth was mainly this prickly cactus-like plant -- impossible to avoid and super painful. Cattails and Foxtails were also prevalent, so be careful with your dogs. Could be a nice hike if it was maintained. I wouldn't do it again.
