Description

From the trailhead, the road rolls gradually up Deer Flat Creek for the first couple of miles until you reach a few switchbacks, which are a low-gear grind up to Deer Flat overlook. The lower trail is smooth and shaded in oak woodlands then becomes rockier and more open as elevation is gained.

From Deer Flat the choice is to continue toward the summit via Deer Flat Road Trail, take the short loop on Meridian Ridge Road Trail or use this trail as an out and back to and from the trailhead.
