“A more popular route off the north side of Atalaya Mountain and into the South Dale Ball network.”
— Phil Lucero
This region of the South Dale Ball network is not for the faint of heart. There really is no easy option and if you find yourself in this area you better know what you're doing. The terrain is technical but rideable. The grade is very steep, however, and that is what will give you trouble if you are not careful.
This section of trail is perhaps the more popular route off the north end of Atalaya Mountain as you do not need to navigate the switchbacks of Trail Junction 31-34
. Even so, this trail will be just as challenging.
