“A combination of great trails in the Quarry area.”— Nathan Delaney
Climbing back up the other side, you'll encounter an intersection with Live Oak Trail (branching left/right) and Portola Trail straight ahead. Take a right on Live Oak Trail and follow it up to the Quarry Trail.
Once at the Quarry Trail (much wider), take a left and begin to head back toward the road. The Quarry Trail has many rocks and drainage spots to be careful about, but the largest rocks are only about 7-8." Quarry Trail will descend to another parking lot.
Continue to the other side of the parking lot and head up the Live Oak Trail. The initial climb is very steep, but it flattens out quickly. You should be able to see where you parked by now. Just follow the frontage trail back to the parking lot.
