“A nice rolling loop around the southern end of Caspers Wilderness Park.”— John McKinney
Parking fees are $3 per vehicle daily Monday-Friday, and $5 per vehicle daily on Saturday and Sunday. Higher rates may apply on holidays or for events.
Many of the trails are multi-use so know the right-of-way rules and be aware of other users.
This trail follows Bell Creek and is nicely shaded by oak and sycamore trees. Sage, lemonade berry, and prickly pear cactus also line the trail. When Oak Trail ends at the junction with Star Rise Trail, turn right to continue north to the intersection with Bell Canyon Trail. Turn right onto the wide doubletrack of Bell Canyon Trail, which hairpins back south and follows the canyon floor. The trail leads back to the top of the parking area via oak and sycamore groves.
