This was actually submitted as Mandeville Spurs, Sullivan Canyon Loop. Starting at the trail head, go to the right and up to the ridge, West Mandeville ridge trail. When the ridge trail meets the Fire road, take the trail going East, dropping down into a canyon, crossing it, then heading up to another ridge going North. This, too, has been called West Mandeville ridge trail, although this spur ridge should probably have a unique name. The trail then joins the main Mandeville ridge. Here, hang a left and head South on the Mandeville Ridge Trail until it joins the Mandeville Fire road. Continue South on the fire road. In about 0.4 miles you'll see a trail. Head down toward Sullivan Canyon, Claire Spur. If you meet up with the ridge trail, you went too far. Claire spur gets really steep in sections and there was loose dirt. If you don't have poles, be prepared to...slide. When you get to, aromatic, Sullivan Canyon, take a left, headed South. About 0.3 miles later there was a sign about Habitat Restoration Area. There are two tails leaving Sullivan Canyon road here. One heads up the other side of the canyon to Sullivan Ridge. The other, going back to the ridge you came from. This has been called Westridge spur trail. This has some steep and loose dirt parts, but did not seem as bad as the Claire trail. Perhaps cause I was asending. This takes you back to the Mandeville Fire road where you take a right and get back to the trail head. I calculated the loop to be around 4.4 miles. Before I turned up the Westridge spur trail, I did an out and back to the South end of the Sullivan Canyon trail which was about a little over a mile rt.
