“Heritage Grove loop with extension on the Towne Fire Road and Forest Trail.”— Duncan M
You start on the Heritage Grove Trail (turning left at the first fork), until you get to the Hikers Hut. From there, you can walk down the fire road a bit to a nice scenic overlook of Pescadero Creek County Park. Next, you backtrack on the fire road (or East/West Brook Trail, which runs parallel to the fire road). Follow the fire road, past the horse camp (turn left at the fork at the horse camp), until you hit Pescadero Creek Road.
Right across the road, you'll find the Forest Trail, which will take you to the Sam McDonald Park parking lot (where you'll find restrooms and a nice map of the park). Cross the road again (on the north-east edge of the parking lot) to hop back on the Heritage Grove Trail. This will take you back to the trailhead and the original parking area.
