This is a nice trail. You may have to drive past the trailhead a couple of times before you see it, but there is a good-sized parking lot. The trail forks a little way up the ridge - the 'official' trail goes left along a creek, but I prefer the one that follows the crest of the ridge. After climbing out of the lower canyon scrub you hike through oak-dotted potreros. The route gets confused near the top, but it doesn't matter because it doesn't really go anywhere anyway. There is a ranch road along the top of the ridge you can stroll to enjoy the view.

You can take the OHV road down Shaw Ridge on the back side to Alamo Creek where there are some nice places to camp. The Condor Trail follows this route and climbs to the top of a ridge on the other side heading toward Agua Escondido and the Garcia Wilderness.
