Where Mt. Hough 8
trail ends at Steinhart meadow, ride 100 yards (or less) on the Mt. Hough Road, and the trail starts to your right. This section has a bit of climbing, but it is an easy grade.
The trail runs into Mt. Hough 1
, and the lower section has been logged. The trail is tough to follow, but look for the moto and for the ribbon, and you'll find the way!
There might be a short hike-a-bike through the clear cut, but probably not by the time you're riding the trail.
