“A wide, dirt road. Mild slope on the east end, steep and grueling on the west end.”
— David Gregg
This has been hidden from our maps to prevent overlap with existing trails, or because
our research has found there is no legal access.
From the top, at the intersection with Rose Hills Fire Rd
, the trail is mostly flat until the intersection with Tank Fire Rd
. Stay left, and the road begins a slow descent, curving widely around a few hillsides. After a crumbling asphalt section, a fun singletrack, A-Line
, splits to the right. At this point, Peppergrass climbs and descends a series of steep hills, soon cutting across A-Line
again, then ending at a small parking lot on Greenleaf St, next to a large, concrete-covered reservoir.
Starting from the lower end at the reservoir, the climb is really steep. It's a popular way to start Turnbull for those who love to climb. Personally, I took one look at it years ago and vowed to never try, but my guess is somewhere between 15-20% grade.
