“So remote, so close, rustic, and full of wildlife”
Rolling hills studded with valley oaks, sycamore-lined canyon bottoms, miles of potential trails, and vistas of unspoiled California landscapes are now part of a parkland legacy.

Great place to hike. Keep dogs on leashes. Coyotes in the area are not afraid of you. Geocaching too.

If you're the kind of person who likes a surprise around each corner, this is the trail for you. With so many dips, rises, and turns around hills, that there were many delights and surprises. Took lots of pictures. I went after a long rainfall...More
