The Tour De Granite was one of the legendary races in Central California. The most notable part of this race is the climb up the granite wall the most people will end up hiking. This is one of the trails that is often requested by people new to the area or visiting sine they have heard of the race.

It does not get much use these days so the trail is difficult to follow. Recent logging in the area has made it even more of a problem. Who knows, if enough people regain interest in this route it may get some volunteer hours for restoration.
