From Kawana, start by going up the Western Route, climbing your way along the wide, easy-grade path that starts on the western side of the water towers. Continue to ascend until you see the Connector Trail signpost that points to the Redtail Trail. Follow this loop down and around (either direction works well) then ascend back to the Connector, this time taking it in the direction of the Eastern Route. Follow the Eastern Route as it ascends steeply up the side of Taylor Mountain along a wide, rocky doubletrack trail all the way until it tops out on the summit.
Soak in the panoramic view of Santa Rosa before descending back down along the Eastern Route (staying straight) all the way back down to the entrance.
