Ridge Trail, west end
Turn left on Ridge Trail.
There's quite a bit of climbing along this way. Groves of shiny brown madrone trees arc to and fro across the forest along the first section of this route.
Eventually you'll pass out of the Madrone forest and into a stretch of oak woodland. After about 1.1 miles you'll reach the turn-off to Goat Rock -- a popular climbing destination and a great place to take pictures.
Turn right here to head straight to Goat Rock, or continue straight for a short jaunt to the Interpretive Shelter.
