“As one of the few dirt routes on the west face of the Berkeley Hills, this trail is surprisingly tranquil.
— Preston Jordan
This is one of the few legal dirt routes on the western face of the Berkeley Hills. It is a surprisingly tranquil roll through a eucalyptus forest with a steep section in the middle that is deeply rutted. This is part of a route that allows catching some dirt connecting between Sibley or Redwood Parks and southeast Berkeley/north Oakland instead of wasting the elevation on Tunnel Road.
