Description

From the parking lot you head across the old bridge to make it to the trail. Follow the obvious trail to the right, where you continue along next to the thick foliage that packs the banks of the river.

All along the trail from here are helpful postings about the wildlife that enriches the area. Eventually you meet the Sweetwater River Trail.
From here you turn back and skirt the foothills and catch a a little more elevation change. Finally you return back to the bridge you originally crossed.

Flora & Fauna

Arroyo Toad, California Buckwheat, Blue Elderberry and the rare Least Bell's Vireo
