Start off by hiking up to Rock Two. From the Bollinger Canyon Road trailhead,
hike up the west trail approx 1,7 miles up to the tower road. Go west of
the summit building and see a higher hill 15 minutes further away. Rock Two
has no signs on the summit, but it is a obvious high point.

up to the Las Trampas ridge. Continue the ridge all the way to Las Trampas
