“A loop with the best trails in the area, and some of the greatest trailside views in California.”— Greg Healy
Hell Hill is a wide fire road that is very steep. It's only 0.7 miles, so it's manageable. This takes you back up to the same intersection where the Guadalasca Trail began. Stay left onto the Overlook Trail for a second until you see the Backbone Trail on your left. Bombs away. Then you'll be back on the Sycamore Canyon Fire Road.
Stay right and stay on the road until you get back to the parking lot.
