Description: From Rock Spring we’ll take a combination of official and unofficial trails (but not difficult) to the Northside Trail, which is flat or undulating, with great views to the north. The Lagunitas trail toward the Middle Peak is the only difficult part, a nasty and steep ascent, but only 0.2 miles. We’ll take our time. Then a little-used unofficial trail, mostly level, to the Lakeview Trail, and Ridgecrest Blvd. The rest of the loop is on the south side, more spectacular views, down the Miller trail. A little bit of fire road, then the scenic and slightly uphill Rock Spring trail back to the cars.
