“A run through a forest of oak trees in the upper reaches of Wunderlich Park.”— David Hitchcock
The trail departs the intersection with the Meadow Trail and works gently uphill through an oak forest. The trail is fairly wide at this point as it meanders through the woods. The oak trees provide a decent amount of cover, without crowding the trails. The other trees that are predominate in the park—redwoods, fir, and eucalyptus—are absent here as you work your way through an oak forest. The trail is dirt and soft underfoot, with oak leaves covering the trail in places, especially in the fall.
After 0.3 miles, the trail begins to descend gently before it levels out as it approaches the intersection with the Alambique Trail at the half-mile mark. From here, you can turn to the left and follow the Alambique Trail back to the parking lot, or go to the right and follow the Alambique Trail to where it meets the Bear Gulch Trail and make you way back to the parking lot.
Even though it is the shortest trail in Wunderlich Park, the trail can be combined with several of the other trails to create nice loops that allow you to explore the park without retracing your steps.
