Overview

There are a few switchbacks that might need to be walked, as well as multiple large rocks in the trail that are pretty hard. This route is best ridden counter-clockwise.

Need to Know

Fruit Heights trails are pretty busy sometimes.

Description

Start in the Fruit Heights trail parking lot. Take the highest dirt road going south until you reach the houses. Continue along the neighborhood road and take your first left that will take you up into a dead-end. From here, if you look north you'll see a paved very steep trail going up the mountain. Take that until you reach the dirt trail, and stay as far as you can to the left. There are a few very hard turns right here that will most likely need to be walked. Once you've done a few turns, you'll reach the flatter section.

You can take this narrow trail all the way to a campsite, although there are many hard technical sections. From this campsite, you can go left and take a dirt road back down to the shoreline road. You can go right and go up a canyon on a dirt road. Or you can continue straight and drop into the canyon. Getting out on the other side of the canyon can be difficult, it is along a technical ledge that eventually leads to a large cliff. From here, you can cruise down to the base of Bair Canyon Trailhead and take the Shoreline road back to your car.
