Inter-Trail Connector: the Shannon Trail This short trail has no trailhead that is immediately accessible from the valley floor. Instead, one trailhead starts off the Henderson Trail about a quarter mile southwest of Araby Cove. The other trailhead starts off the Garstin Trail near an intersection with the Berns Trail, near the top of the lower hills. The trail is of moderate difficulty, and it climbs relatively quickly through its 800 feet. A hiker has a very clear, fairly close view of the Bob Hope mansion and several other large residences that populate Southridge.
