A tough climb up a big rock.

Rob Kranovich

Overview

Description

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.

This trail used to be one of my absolute favorites, but as of 9/21/14 it's been out of use so long as to be impassible. The initial singletrack is gone and the descent from the top of the granite (after the creek crossing) is now just caterpillar logging track. Hoping this gets some volunteer time to fix up.
