good trail run. we camp or day pass it for $5 a head. fire road most of the way up although in many place it is rutted, steep, or washed out. from the top you get a view of the lake and wine country. mostly used by mountain bikers but they mostly keep to the single track trails.

So you know, the trail(s) start INSIDE an RV resort and they charge $5 PER PERSON. Wish I would have known that starting out! The person that was at the front gate was not helpful at all.. I was asking if this was the right place for this specific trail and he’s like yeah we have a lot of trails and handed me a hand drawn map

once i found the original trail head, thia run is awesome. its easy t get lost without this app and doing this the first time. record your hike/run in the app to know the way. it will eat up your phone battery. i did an exyra 4 miles accidentally, lol. but now i know my way.

This is not a 'real' trail to grab in all the beautiful things lol. Lots of cyclists!! More like a race track than anything. I would definitely use this as a conditioning hike. It can be as easy or as difficult as you want to make it...depending on what it is you do. Outside of that...it was ok.
