The total elevation gain should be about 800 ft, but could vary depending on route chosen. Dogs are allowed but should remain leashed on the trails north of Ygnacio Valley Road. Dogs are not permitted on trails south of Ygnacio Valley Road. During the rainy season, be prepared for some mud. We should see nice vistas and possibly a hawk or maze.
