The trail starts at the base of the soccer complex road/parking lot. Start at the pavement and go left on the first dirt trail entrance (Regional Park Connector
). From there, you'll see the marker where this trail begins.
At any fork on the way up, stay right. Going left takes you to unclimbable terrain. Dig your way up and enjoy the view.
From top of Zanja, you can drop down Bomb Drop which is the start of Rollercoaster Trail or you can drop down Zanja Trail Connecter which leads you to Crafton Hills Ridge Trail
, Regional DH, Grape Trail, Windmill, and 38 Special
