Trail shared by Nick Wilder

A hilly alternative to the other trails in the valley floor.

Features River/Creek

Description

This abandoned dirt road is surprisingly hilly, though there's not much net elevation change. Go up and down through pleasant oak forests; they're more dense here and there are not many wide-open views as there are in other trails.

There are several stream crossings that are difficult to cross after big rains (or take your shoes off!).
