“A route between the Stream Trail at the Mill Site bridge and the middle section of the French Trail.
— John Rabold
River/Creek · Wildlife
Bicycles are not permitted on this trail. The lower section of this trail (between the junction with Stream Trail
and the sharp turn at the split-rail fence) is within the Stream Trail Resource Protection Area, so dogs must be on leash in that section; the restriction is noted by a sign at the sharp turn. Dogs may be off leash but under voice control above the sign.
This trail connects the Stream Trail
at the Mill Site bridge and the middle section of the French Trail
. The low section uses part of an old alignment of the Stream Trail
and follows the canyon's primary stream closely along the stream's west bank. The upper section is quite steep in one area. The upper section and lower section meet at a sharp turn at a split-rail fence. (Trail users should not cross this fence line; the property on the other side is restricted as a Resource Protection Area associated with the stream and its wildlife.)
Flora & Fauna
Coast redwoods and California bay laurels predominate.
