Description

The first half mile of this trail is relatively flat and passes through meadows and open woodlands next to West Union Creek. Beyond that, the trail crosses McGarvey Gulch, then climbs steeply to Skyline Boulevard, passing the Toyon Group Camps along the way.

Flora & Fauna

Look for redwoods, Douglas-firs, and madrones.
