Wendell T. Robie Trail is a 4.8 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Greenwood, California 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. Dogs are also able to use this trail but must be kept on leash.

Nice trail away from the crowds (probably due to the uneventfullness described below). My favorite part is between the Browns Bar and the Quarry trail where it opens up into oak and meadow areas with nice views looking down canyon.
Keep an eye out for horses and MTB'ers poaching the trail.
One of many trails in the Auburn recreation area. That said, there are multiple side trails and lots of dry plants on the dirt trail. I also remember quite a bit of poison oak, but probably not anymore than any other trail in the area. The hike itself was uneventful, but the best part was the wet burrito in Georgetown at the mom and pops Mexican food place, but hike before eating, it will plug all your arteries.
