Fish Trail starts at a three-way junction with Forest Trail
and Flat Frog Trail
off of Manzanita Point Road
. Take the middle trail as Forest Trail
branches off to the right and Flat Frog Trail
heads to your left.
Fish Trail heads down then up then down again for the first mile, as you run in and out of the woods, along a creek, and through a meadow. At about 1.2 miles, the trail takes a turn to the west and starts a climb up to its end point on the Middle Ridge Trail
. The climb does have some steep sections and is about a mile long, so pace yourself on the way up.
Once at the end of the trail, you have the option to continue your run on the Middle Ridge Trail
or to return the way you came.
