The trails are open year-round but can get muddy (or snowy) in places during the winter.

The trails are used by hikers, mountain bikers, and equestrians, so please observe proper trail etiquette. A few trails are reserved for mountain biking (these are usually signed as such), so please don’t run on these.

There are no potable water sources in the park or along the trails—be sure to bring plenty of your own.

Need to Know

There are no fees to use this park. There are 7 designated parking areas throughout the park, each with room for 5 to 12 cars. They are located near clusters of trail heads. Some have chemical toilets but most have no amenities beyond a parking space. Very useful paper trails maps are sometimes available at the parking area kiosks but can also be obtained online.

Description

The 2.1-mile Halls of Manzanita Trail starts at a junction with the Naversen Family Trail and the Canyon Vista Trail, then tunnels through old-growth manzanita as it follows the north and east boundaries (there are some views along here), past a junction with the Steep Canyon Rangers Trail, then down to a crossing of Cantrall Creek. Past the creek, it crosses Reservoir Road near Parking Area P-6, then contours down-canyon (a few more views) before ending at a junction with the Siskiyou Trail. Just before reaching the Siskiyou Trail, you'll pass a junction where the bike-only section of the Halls of Manzanita Trail makes a steep descent down the ridge to Parking Area P-4.

Flora & Fauna

Watch out for ticks in the spring, rattlesnakes (rare) in the warmer months, and poison oak all year-round. Consider these nuisances if you let your dog off-leash.
