California Road Nature Trail climbs from the floor of the canyon following the historic California trail before turning south following an old rail road bed. Wagon ruts are still evident on the west side of the canyon.
I would have been a lovely hike but was so over ran with sticker bushes my dog couldn't even stand it. You stopped every 10 minutes to pull out bush full of stickers. If you're just hiking without pet and with jeans and boots you'll be fine and it's a gear work out
The views and the landscape was a five and it was beautiful, but we were hearing a lot of rattlesnakes and one particular around the first mile that was right next to the trail. We had to turn back in case anything happened.
The app is wrong on this one. Check the map frequently. great trail.
kids loved it!!
Well maintained nature walk that takes you above the canyon to see views of the canyon and surrounding forests.
The wagon ruts were the draw to hike it. It is a nice overall simple trail. Does connect to the canyon overlook trail.
