“Trail circumnavigating a grassy hill with cows grazing and great views of the Silicon Valley.”— Rob Garneau
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.
