Did trail six months ago and it was as good as it was when it was 87 degrees and the state was on fire. One of my favorites.

Starts with a very steep fire road that turns onto Fern Creek trail, a nice single track through chap and tree cover with increasingly nice views. The payoff at East Peak is wonderful, but there are easier, prettier ways up if you'd like. This is a great workout but not the best option if you're showing visitors around.

Great hike with consistent incline but the view was well worth it! Took about 2.5 hrs

First to Review

I took the old railway road to Vic Haun trail and to Temelpa trail up to the east peak. this route gains in elevation in small area.Nice workout with rewarding views of the bay. On the way back, I took the upper Fern trail back to old railway road. There is enough water flowing down and beautiful ferns growing on the banks of the streams to make the hike interesting
