“A sustained climb out toward Holter Ridge from the Lost Man Creek picnic and parking area.”
— Zander Göpfert
This trail starts off Hwy 101 north of Berry Glenn at the Lost Man Creek picnic and parking area, which lies at the end of Geneva Road
. It heads east gradually along Lost Man Creek.
After a little over a mile, the trail will begin its ascent up the contours of the hills above the creek, gaining elevation quickly at times (~30% grade) until it tops out at Holter Ridge and the intersection with the Holter Ridge Trail
For a long loop option, head south on the Holter Ridge Trail
, which is also open to bikes, and then head back along Bald Hills Rd and Hwy 101 for a ~20-mile loop with 2,800'+ of elevation gain.
