Runner Notes

Good even trail.

Description

From the park entrance, take the well-marked trail to the right. Switchback up the wide service road and you soon come to where the trail loops back on itself. Stay right and head uphill for a mile until the trail loops back to the left where it intersects the Los Peumos Trail. Now you are closer to the creek as you make your way back to the start.
