Ahhh.....my old stomping grounds. Used to to this all the time in H.S. on my old steel POS. I still make a point of going up there when I'm visiting the folks.
It's shorter than Diablo and much steeper than Hamilton. 10 miles basically......up. Very little traffic especially on weekdays.
You'll go up through the neighborhood and then down to the bridge. After the bridge brace youself 'cause it's going to hurt for a while. Take your mind off it by enjoying the lovely scenery and keeping an eye out for wildlife.
Close to the top you'll come to a short drop with a cattleguard at the bottom.......*** IT!......you'll want the momentum, trust me.
After this little leg breaker you'll be near the Ranch. Tell the Ranger hello if you see him (same guy as when I was in H.S.)
