Trailhead parking in Clayton off Clayton Road. The hike up is not very interesting, dirt road and cow grazing grass hills. However, once to the top enter Black Diamond Mines Reagional Preserve for a much more interesting landscape. Be sure to see the old mining air shaft (waypoint provided) and loop around the ridge for great views and a nice spot to break for lunch.
