This stretch of trail was absolutely horrible. Never take Agua Caliente (BART) from the ridge down into Ed Levin (or the other way). Cows had torn it to pieces during the mud, which had hardened into ankle-breaking ripped up cement. No signage. Bleh.
Yeah, I'm sure bikes could go on this trail anyways.
Right. With the lock that doesn't work and the gate that falls open.
Left side: cow nommed. Right side: no cow nomming. Hm.
Now that I'm on the non-cow-nommed side of the gate, I see flowers again. Yay.
Sign about 1.5 miles in at the junction of Agua Caliente and Monument Peak Trails. It says 2 miles to Monument peak and 8 miles to Mission Peak. The Mission distance is inaccurate - it's actually 8 miles *round trip* from this point.
Watering trough. Lots of cattle roaming around this park.
