Don’t let the gated community deter you. If you’re coming here for hiking or biking the security guard will let you through. He might ask for ID and write down your plate number, but that’s it. I actually like it because then I don’t feel like someone is going to break into my car at the staging area. But back to the trail... it’s a steady climb up to the ridge, but not as bad as starting from Foothill since you’re driving part way up. Also, you can’t follow this exact track on a mountain bike as the short Chaparral trail section is only for hikers, but you can get around by staying on the Vally View trail. So it’s a great spot for both activities.
