You will climb the road to the water tanks. The trail will turn right around the arroyo, then right again and downhill. The trail will continue on the road around a left curve. At a 4 way intersection look for a narrow trail on the left that proceeds straight up the spur to a rock house further along that trail. Follow that trail up to the rock house, once there you will go to the left around the rock house, then find the trail continuing up. You will reach a fork, where you will take a right joining the Wyler Ridgeline trail. You can return by retracing your steps.
