Description

The trail starts by crossing over a storm drain and heading into a steep climb. Most people choose to hike-a-bike up this first hill. The trail then turns right up a steady ascent. Other trails merge from the right side, but for this trail, head straight to the metal pole at the summit. After this, follow the ridge down a small rock garden and up a difficult rock roll. After this, it is smooth sailing to Turtle Rock.

I didn't see the other check ins last time, but boy are they right. This trail is hot trash, and is not well kept at all. The entire hill is awful.

All the hikers here hate bikers. And the trails are in terrible condition. 10/10 would NOT recommend — 0h 30m

Absolute horrid trails. Terribly maintained. People there are terrible and rude as well. They break laws like smoking and not picking up dog feces.

I wouldn't see why you would come here. Seems like the hikers here absolutely hate bikers. They threatened to call the police on me.

Some guy starting yelling at us because we apparently aren’t aloud to ride there because there are no “vehicles allowed” but you’re fine he’s salty… 0.7mi

Steep rock garden on the south end of Suicide Hill. Has a 5-7 foot drop at the top, and mellows out as you get closer towards the bottom.
