Located on Morgan Hill State Forest with easy access. Ample parking & pretty easy walking. You can hook up with the FLT/NCT also. This area has many great hikes of variable distances. Access is easy, parking is ample and the hike takes you through some beautiful forest with a summertime reward of a huge field of fresh berries. This area is honeycombed with many adjoining hikes - a great area to get to know. Worth every effort you put into it!!Show more
