“Gunshot connects Brown Bridge (top of White Hill) to Loma Alta (Smith Ridge) with a brutal climb!”— S. Lengyel
The first part of Gunshot Trail is an easy fire road that connects the Brown Bridge a the top of White Hill to Old Railroad Grade Trail. It is a popular connector and popular spot for hikers and dog walkers.
The second part of Gunshot Trail is, well, brutal. It is steep, exposed, and often has large ruts. Think old school fall line ranch road. It is mostly used as a downhill connector from Loma Alta- Fairfax (Smith Ridge Fire Road) and 680 Trail to connect across to White Hill Trail for longer rides.
It is rideable uphill, but not that much fun. I would choose Loma Alta- Fairfax (Smith Ridge Fire Road) over the Gunshot climb any day.
