Start walking up and to the right until you find the railroad tie trail
Follow it up to the top. Glider hill is on the left. Possible DS hill on the right
|Glider Hill (Center) and Red Hill (Right) from the back driving in:|
|U-turn at the end of the road:|
|Trail head starts about 50 yards to the left at the end of the road. Just start walking up between the hills and look for the path with the railroad ties. You will walk through a couple of picknick areas on your way. Once you find them you'll know your on the right path. It was longer than I expected the first time I went so keep going until you find them.|
South Hill: From Glider hill, take trail South. Continue South on Ridge line until the Ridge ends. That's the spot!
