Great 3 mike shortcut to the top most view (Sand Point Overlook). It’s very uphill, and follows a fire road through some interesting undeveloped properties.

It begins with a creek crossing (barefoot if it’s running strong). Don’t miss the abandoned Jeep.

The entry is a metal road gate right by the quarry that says no trespassing. A couple miles in you get to a real trail sign for destinations in nisene marks. This trail is fire road and has 4 water crossings within the first half mile. Super cool and I only saw one other person.

Nice short route. Only one view point with two benches.
Good thing that it's all in shades
