Hike from N. Stanton St to the Wyler Aerial Tramway and Ranger Peak. From the parking area, climb the road to the water tank. Follow the trail east from the tank and up hill. The trail will turn right around the arroyo, then right again and downhill. The trail will continue on the road around a left curve. DO NOT take the trail going uphill to the poles. At a 4 way intersection at 0.8 miles look for a narrow trail on the left that proceeds straight up the spur to a rock house far up the spur. Follow that trail up to the rock house. At the rock house, go to the left around the rock house, then find the trail continuing up the spur. At 1.45 miles you come to a fork joining the Wyler Ridgeline Trail #1. Take the fork right to get to the tramway. Return via reverse route.

Pretty easy little hike/run. Got to the very top in about my 45 mins. Lots of loose rock to jack an ankle up so watch your step.
