Manzanita Grove is a 3.6 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near El Sobrante, CA that features beautiful wild flowers and is good for all skill levels. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible year-round. Horses are also able to use this trail.
Great little hike out and back with a little loop on the end that goes through an Alameda Manzanita grove. The only other place in the bay that it grows is Huckleberry. It's almost a moderate and easy only because it's short and reminded me quite a bit of some of the hikes in Briones. Enjoyable hike that only takes about an hour.
