“The high route through the El Cerrito Hillside Natural Area with some amazing views.”
— Preston Jordan
A fire road mostly along the contours except for a bit of climb/drop at the north end and a steep dip in the middle. There are some amazing views of the central Bay, particularly from above the old quarry occupied by the El Cerrito Recycling Center. Along with the Forest Brown Trail
, these trails provides one of the few means to cover half the East Bay Hills western face on dirt rather than pavement.
