Features Fall Colors

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 hike 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 seven 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

This 1.4-mile trail is one of the many named trails in this park. It connects Parking Area P-2 on Jacksonville Reservoir Road with Parking Area P-3 on Norling Road, and with the Ol' Miners' Trail. It, like other trails in this immediate area, was built along a ditch used to carry water for one mile to a hydraulic mine in the canyon to the south. In the fall it affords, after an initial climb, a very nice, nearly level stroll through colored foliage.

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.
