Empire Mine Road Trail is a 6.8 mile lightly trafficked out and back trail located near Antioch, California that features beautiful wild flowers and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, birding, and road biking and is accessible year-round. Dogs are also able to use this trail.
This is a paved road closed to traffic. Beautiful scenery once passing houses. Rolling hills and fields with happy content cattle younger and older. It's of prairie dogs entertaining pedestrians. Bicycles and runners using this stretch as well. If your dog likes to hunt prairie dogs keep them leashed, there are huge colonies as you can see in hills. Ad they are curios! Enjoy!
Very family friendly. My 2 yr old walked the entire way. Shaded. Pretty flat. Handicap accessible almost the entire time,
