Trail shared by Tom G

A steady uphill through a redwood forest that starts steep and becomes more gradual.

Features River/Creek · Spring · Wildlife

Sections are very narrow and with a steep dropoff, so no bicycles are allowed and small children and dogs could be at risk.

Description

Park off Mountain Blvd at Joaquin Miller Court on the lower (west end) or at the main Joaquin Miller Park parking area on Sanborn Road off Joaquin Miller Road. You can use this section to create a loop run. There are many, many nice options in this park! This particular trail is a steady climb that is in places very narrow with a cliff alongside.

Flora & Fauna

Redwood forest, oak woodlands.
