Trail shared by Kristen Arendt

This short trail is one of the most fun in Tilden Park.

Kristen Arendt

Features River/Creek

Description

From the Lone Oak Trail, the trail crosses a creek that has steep banks and a rooty section to get up the other side. Use caution as the footing here can be a bit dicey. This section of the trail is more singletrack so watch for poison oak along the edges.

The trail widens to doubletrack once you're in the shaded canyon, and there's a short, rocky climb followed by another section with exposed roots. You'll be running along a shady creek ride all the way to the junction with the Curran Trail so enjoy the cool atmosphere that is especially pleasant on a hot, dry day.
