FR 580

 

Back

The Trail:

We found this trail while we were out benchmarking. It's a little rough coming off 60, then turns into a nicely graded road, and then turns into a very rough road up to Madera Peak. We were hoping you could continue down FR 580 to FR 651, but not far past the peak we ran into a locked gate that blocked the road, so we had to head back the way we came.

Rating:

1.5 initially, 1.0 for the graded portion, and 3.0 for the final portion (lockers really helped on the steeper portions of the trail)

Runs:

At a crest - the weeds were growing in the trail at this portion:

The final push to the top. The trail drops off near the middle of the picture, and picks up again heading straight up to the microwave towers:

We stopped by the towers - it was chilly and breezy:
