Description

This climb is a great place to put your head down and power through the ride. It allows riders of all skills to push themselves and work hard at it. The trail starts at the top of Borrego Trail and ends at Four Corners.

This is a wide, graded fire road and, although steep in a few places, is a very easy trail to negotiate technically. At the very beginning of this section, branching uphill and left from the trail kiosk, is a small "extra credit" loop no more than a few hundred yards of fun singletrack. Go up and left, then turn right on a little singletrack. Follow it around a horse-shoe shape and back down to merge with the trail near some picnic benches.

This is a fun route through what is primarily XC riding in Whitting Ranch.  I went through Sage Scrub, Live Oak, Cattle Pond, Cactus Hill and Sleepy Hollow.
