Description

Starting at the Greensprings Spur Road parking lot (which has a restroom), the trail begins uphill from behind the restroom. It's about 1.3 miles to the top of small butte. You can continue on past the butte another 1.5 to Songer Wayside.

There is no official signage and the trail can be indistinct at times. As of late 2018, the poison oak has been trimmed back.

Flora & Fauna

I have seen osprey, owl, turkeys, deer, herons, hawks, bluebirds, etc.
