Need to Know

Treking poles will help with any creek running. Although there are no water fountains on the trail and the creek itself is not potable, water fountains are available in nearby Dimond Park.

Description

The trailhead starts at El Centro. It's an easy run along a graded dirt path into the woods. The trail narrows significantly before disappearing at points by the old WPA dam. Hop along rocks in the creek (in the dry season) to find the trail again beneath the Leimert Bridge. The trail disappears again past the bridge even in the dry season, but again it's relatively easy to either wade or hop on the rocks.
