The watershed remains open to the public, with some restrictions, for recreational use daily from sunrise to sunset. The recent county health order prohibits vehicles and parking at the watershed, with the exception of people with disabilities who have the required disability placards or license plates for their vehicles. Parking for those with disabilities is available at our Sky Oaks parking lot. While the watershed remains open, visitors must comply with social distancing requirements of at least 6 feet. All volunteer programs that take place on the watershed have been canceled until further notice. This road offers a good place for a hiking, mountain biking and trail running that is not very steep and has options on where you can go. This guide shows a there and back route down the Concrete Pipe Road up the Shaver Grade Road. Even though it is the concrete pipe road it is a dirt road, it is given that name because of concrete pipes that follow along side the road.

Lots of trail options. Trails are diverse terrain and beautiful views on some. Phoenix Lake circuit was lovely.
