Route Description

Walk about 0.3 miles back up Alma Bridge Rd from the direction you came until you reach a gate on the right-hand side of the road. This is the begining of Limekiln Trail. Follow Limekiln Trail for about 1.4 miles until you reach a fork. On the right side of the fork is Limekiln Trail and on the left side is Priest Rock Trail. Go right to stay on Limekiln Trail and follow it for 3 miles until it becomes Woods Trail. Follow Woods Trail for about 0.75 miles and you will be at the summit of El Sombroso.
