Need to Know
You gotta pay to park.
The Overlook Trail
is a doubletrack/fire road off of Sycamore Canyon Fire Road
. Start by climbing up that. It's long and pretty mellow with amazing views. Once you get to the intersection, stay straight onto the Guadalasca Trail
. This is a short climb and a long, fun descent that is flowy and has some switchbacks. At the end, stay right on the Wood Canyon Fire Road
doubletrack for a little ways until you get to Hell Hill
, which will be your first right.
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.
