Starting at the gate, head west on a wide dirt road. At the first junction, marked Forest Service Trail (FS) #715, turn left. This singletrack trail climbs to the high point of this route. Stay right at any junction on this route. Scrub oak flanks both sides of the trail, and exposed rocks require focus on the rolling terrain. After crossing the high point and enjoying the views, descend on the singletrack to a dirt road at Memorial Grove, an homage to firefighters. Follow the road back to the start point to finish this clockwise loop. OVERLOOK
