This trail runs in the channel parallel to the Levee Trail. It is soft dirt/mud instead of gravel.

Doug Baer

Overview

After wet weather, this trail is very muddy or wet and can be impassible. It is the drainage channel that all of the washes feed into.
Features: Views — Wildflowers
Dogs: Leashed

Runner Notes

This trail is the "low road" to the Levee Trail's "high road"—they run parallel, but the Levee Trail is a gravel road. All of the wash trails in the park connect to the Channel Trail and most can be reached from the Levee.

Description

This trail parallels the Levee Trail at the southern border of the park. You can run either one, but the Levee Trail is a gravel road on top of the levee while the Channel Trail is soft dirt. There are a few places where the trail goes over a rise to go around a couple of dams within the channel. Be safe and follow the trail. Going over the dams is possible, but nobody wants to fall onto concrete.

Many people run the Levee Trail, but there is not a lot of traffic on this one.

Flora & Fauna

In the spring, a lot of wildflowers usually grow in the channel.
