The School Bus trail (aka Magic Bus on Forest Service maps) can be incorporated into several different loops or ridden as an out and back from Hobbit 3. From Hobbit 3 climb at a moderate grade with many switchbacks through shady forest to a trail junction in a meadow just below 9600'. The trail crosses several privately held mining claims through which access has been secured.
