One of the trails in Redlands. Open all year to all skill level. This is a trail in an undeveloped area in the mountains.

Great little trail to get kids started in single-track and switchbacks with minimal uphill climbs.

Nice flat trail. Actual water in the creek. You can hear the train and cars from the road. Cute places to sit and rest.

Nice easy loop trail. Very dry and dusty. Parking lot was kind of hard to find. Dirt lot near railroad on the north end.

Nic little trail, particularly the upper path along the hills. However road and train noise loud and distracting. Both parallel trail.

Both single and double track trails. Mostly well packed dirt, hardly any loose rocks or gravel, a few areas of sand. A few shady areas but mostly sun.

I'm new to mountain biking and in my 50s. This is a perfect single track training trail. Switchbacks and rollers without loose gravel. (I take baby steps.)

This trail is in a nature preserve - rabbits, lizards and a coyote were roaming this morning.

It's a great beginners hike! My kids are 9 and 10 and they were able to do it without complaining. It may seem hard to find but there is a little
Sign in front that says sanctuary.... Park right out front to begin. And there are markers that tell you where to go. The only wild life we came across were lizards

Still lots of wild flowers, lizards, and a snake!

Very clean, lots of wildflowers! There were signs of a couple homeless encampments mid trail down by the creek so be cautious if you're walking it alone. The signage is misleading though, on the Alessandro end the signage refers to it as the "San Timoteo Nature Preserve Trail" FYI.

The trails were easy to maneuver and only narrow at some parts. Definitely take extra caution as snake season approaches. There is also a creek that may be worth walking along but be careful as there are no defined trails on either side of it.

The trail we took extends from San Timoteo Canyon Rd to Alessandro Rd. It is either 2.9 or 2.5 miles each way, depending on which path you take. You can park at either end. The trail is marked and maintained fairly well. Views are nothing to write home about. Hardly any elevation gain, makes for an easy walk.
