“The climb (or descent) from Principal to La Cresta.”
— Charles Brewer
Can be part of a good family loop. Some exposure in a place or two to be careful of.
A great climb or descent. If you're taking this one as a climb, you'll begin at the end of the Principal
Trail. From there, it's a steep climb to get to La Cresta
. The trail features are not hard, but it's hard to go fast on the way up!
Heading down, you'll pick up speed easily!
