This "trail" is the long climb that gets you to the top of the Culvert Trail
or the beginning of the Connector Trail
. The trail begins through the gate on the south side of the Old Foresthill Rd. bridge. It starts as singletrack briefly, turns to dirt road, and then you continue uphill on the doubletrack until you hit Lake Clementine Rd.
From there, it's straight up hill to the Connector/Culvert trailhead. Not fun by any means, but a necessary evil if you want to ride a lot of these trails without the use of a shuttle.
