“The marquee trail in the Trestle Recreation Area that leads to the restored Mexican Canyon Trestle.”— Eric Borer
The busy season (May-Sept) brings many people to this area that are not as familiar with trail runners or trail etiquette. Be patient, the trails are worth it.
Following T5001A, you'll come to a junction in which you'll continue right on restored railroad bed. This section skirts Toboggan Canyon and provides great views.
Eventually turning north, you'll enter the pines and switchback down toward one more doubletrack section before arriving at the restored trestle that spans the canyon.
