"This very easy walk from atop East Camino Cielo Road leads to the ruins of the once-magnificent Knapp mansion. A longer option is to approach from the SYRA to the north. Be mindful of mountain bikers when on the main fire road. The Knapp ruins are on private property, but the current owner allows hikers to visit (this may change without notice). The site is occasionally used as a filming location."
