This loop begins on Glenn Ranch Rd and offers a bit more climbing than Whiting 1. After climbing up to Dreaded Hill, descend and catch Cactus Hill to the Sage Scrub trail and descend some more into the canyon. From Serrano Cow you will catch Live Oak trail for some final, single-track fun, before its time to for one final ascend back to the car.
