The ride begins near the Holiday Inn on Westwood Blvd. off the North Price/Exit 241 of US6. Ride west on Westwood Blvd. continuing through the stop sign. Follow the road northwest and through a 4-way stop. Westwood becomes Gordon Creek Road soon after. At the next 4-way stop, turn left (west) staying on Gordon Creek Road. After about a mile, Pinnacle Peak Road, an unsigned dirt road, branches off to the left. Follow it up through Pinnacle Canyon, passing the canyon's impressive namesake rock formations on the left. After climbing a short distance out of the canyon, the ride rolls along the Porphyry Bench. Bypass the several spur roads staying on the main route. Follow the road to the railroad tracks, but do not cross the tracks. Instead, take the road to the right (north) that parallels the tracks.
