“A rustic trail that loops into the main Espinosa Trail”— Russell Hobart
Shortly afterwards, the trail turns north and heads downhill, arriving in a more verdant drainage which features some live oak and more birds. You follow the drainage downhill until you meet the thicker foliage along the creek.
The trail flattens out as you head up creek and eventually come to the Espinosa Trail. Don't forget to head down to see the beautiful water-carved rock of the creek, along with a couple of ancient Indian 'morteros' (grinding surfaces).
