Description

This smooth, wide fire road running atop Monte Bello Ridge is a continuation of a paved road that starts from Stevens Canyon Road in Cupertino and ends at Page Mill Road. Near the middle of the trail is 2,800-ft Black Mountain, the trail's high point with a communication site. Several trails branch off and can be used as loops or connectors to the Canyon Trail which runs parallel.
