Took Cinnabar Connector to North Cinnabar Trail, then at the Saddle South to Crane Ridge Trail & down to connect back to North Cinnabar Trail & Cinnabar Connector to cars.
The vehicle access we took for this trip was on a logging road built before 2006. It had been de-activated but the crossbars were passable if you took them at an angle slowly. My Subaru Forester had the trailer hitch on which hit first protecting the vehicle. [photo]NorthCinnibar01UpperTrailhead.jpg[caption]View South from near the landing[/photo]
