A trail from the Acorn Trail area parking to the southern side of Callahan Park.

Features Birding · Fall Colors

Description

The Backpacker Trail connects the Acorn Trail and its parking area through Bebe Pond and Gibbs "Mountain" to the southern side of the park. The northern side has fewer visitors whereas the southern has many dogs off-leash with wider open spaces. The trail isn't too technical except close to Edmunds Road around Gibbs Mountain.

Flora & Fauna

Rarely deer, usually chipmunk and squirrels only.
