“Well-shaded run close to the city but still somewhat wild.”— Jordan Brown
About halfway to Sesnon Boulevard, you pass under the Hollow Springs Drive bridge. At Sesnon Boulevard, return the way you came. Although the hills in front of you are full of small roads, I believe they're all inside the Southern California Gas Company Aliso Canyon gas field.
On weekend mornings, this trail is quite busy with runners.
A short run along Tampa connects to the Palisades Trail in the Wilbur-Tampa Park, between Wilbur Avenue and Braemore Road. At the south end of the park, a large concrete-floored culvert under Rinaldi connects to the Lower Limekiln Canyon Trail
