“Harrington Creek Trail is an easy and lightly trafficked trail.”— Haroon Muhammad
The trail is wide and well marked. About 3.2 miles from the parking area, there is a junction, where the Harrington Creek Trail continues slightly left and the Folger Ranch Loop Trail goes slightly right.
There are several areas for cattle grazing, some are separated by cattle gates and others are not. A large number of cows on the trail can make it difficult to cross.
This trail is probably good to visit in winter and spring when the grass pastures are green and wildflowers are blossoming. In summer, it is recommended to start early to avoid heat as there is little shade on the trail.
