Need to Know
At roughly the 3.5-mile mark, you'll start hitting the steeper part of the trail where it goes up to Sullivan Fire Road (8-12%). Once you hit the concrete pad at the top of the first steep section, make a left up towards Sullivan Fire Road. This part is 8-15% for about half a mile but features a lot of loose rocks making it pretty tough.
Once you hit Sullivan Fire Road at the top, hang a right towards Mulholland Drive Fire Road. Once you hit Mulholland, hang a right towards Westridge Singletrack. Descend for about half a mile and turn right at the yellow gate into the Nike Missile Base Site. Once you reach the scenic overlook, stay to the right: there are bathrooms and a high arching water fountain that can easily refill bottles or a reservoir.
Continue down Westridge/Mandeville Fire Road about a quarter mile until you see the Westridge Singletrack off to your left. This is where the fun begins!
Westridge Singletrack will intertwine with Westridge/Mandeville Fire Road at several points. You can hop on or off as you see fit as there are three tough grades to climb to get over the ridges on the singletrack (+15%) but they are easily hike-able, too.
Head all the way down to the parking lot and continue back down to Bayliss and Queensferry to get back to your car. Enjoy a cold beverage!
