This walk takes you up high, to great views of the surrounding grasslands and a perfect perch for birdwatching. Red-tailed hawks and golden eagles are common hear, as are ground squirrels, owls, reptiles, badgers, and the San Joaquin kit fox. The trailside structural remnants are what’s left of farm buildings built by Joseph Laughlin in 1920s and 1930s. From the staging area walk to the Brushy Peak Loop trailhead at the left of the residence. Walk until it takes a sharp left-hand bend and goes uphill. This is your turn-around point. Show more
