Closed Monday. Closed 1/2 hour after sunset.

Description

You can access this trail from the end of the Sierra Vista Trail, but it's also commonly approached from the Todd Quick Trail from the south.

If riding from the Todd Quick Trail, expect a steep and challenging climb for about 100 yards to the top of the Boccardo Connector. At the intersection, head right (talking loop trail to the left is VERY steep.) There will be a short, very steep section followed by a level section for a 1/4 mile. The rest of the trail is nice singletrack with some switchbacks up the grassy hill and cows grazing all around.

At the top of the climb, you can either continue around the Boccardo Trail, turn right onto Sierra Vista Trail, or pedal another quarter mile up to the scenic viewpoint.

Lots of climbing but great views. Did not enjoy the descent as much as I'd hoped—horses on the muddy fire road after the rain rutted it up.

Unless you're a superstar climber, don't try this clockwise because the climb is VERY steep! Oct 13, 2015
Pretty boring gravel and hardpack clay trail. Good views, nothing much else interesting about it. Nov 19, 2016
