Trail Overview

This short road is somewhat deceiving as it appears to take you to a water pump station and nothing more. At the very end of the road is a single spot for dry primitive camping below a cliff and is close to the Northern end of Diablo Canyon. Be aware that this road has some deep dips and an arroyo crossing which can be difficult at times, especially during increment weather. There is a set of steps over the fence to walk down to the Diablo Canyon trail and the Canada Ancha. Makes for a very secluded and private spot to camp. There is no cellular service in this area.

Difficulty

This road has a lot of dips and some side erosion. Not a difficult drive with high clearance, definitely out for lower clearance vehicles.
