“Gorgeous, contour following, hillside hugging, legal singletrack in Mt. Diablo State Park.”— Mike Anciaux
To take the trail in the northerly direction, start at the southern end of Stage Road (after it branches off of BBQ Terrace Road. It is quite a climb to get here, but the trail is fairly level once you are there.
The trail comes close to North Gate Road in the middle and then continues a bit more before ending on Burma Road - North Gate Road to Stage Road where it intersects North Gate Road.
Watch out for the second canyon when going this way. At about .5 miles in, the trail makes a right and heads down on a steep, loose, rutted surface. At the bottom there is an immediate left across a small stream bed and then it has a short steep up to be back to level. It's easy to get started down the hill without knowing what is ahead of you. If you're going too fast (like anything faster than a crawl for me) you may not be able to control your descent. I have seen lots of falls here!
