“Singletrack that parallels the fire road, making it more challenging with some steep short climbs.”— Ari Cheren
The singletrack portion starts where the trail forks. You'll see a fireroad veer off to the left (Water and Power Pole Road - it drops down to Mandeville) and a fireroad that goes uphill to your right (that's Westridge) Go right up the middle up a steep step-up to get onto the singletrack.
To access, either ride up the very steep paved Westridge from Mandeville/Sunset, or park in the lot. Alternatively, you can start up top or use it as the first or last part of a larger loop (such as a Sullivan Canyon climb, or in conjunction with Sullivan Fireroad Climb to Sullivan Canyon, making for a 15 to 19 mile loop if starting in Brentwood.
