Put on your hiking boots for a tour into Rodriguez canyon.
The road is excellent but steep, so I alternately hiked, on the steep stretches it cost less energy to hike.
Close to the start there is a gate, but it's normally unlocked.
At the first unmarked crossing turn left. From now on continue on the road down and unfortunately up again.

Where you don't need it, suddenly a road sign RC 160. Cross the PCT trail and head down the Rodriguez canyon, the road turns into a gravel road, rather slippery.
At the end a more sandy wash road.

Start location: In Banner at an unsigned dirt road mile 64.9
