This Trail is nice! the loop i did was a bit short but there are plenty of trails that you can sure make it longer. The mosquitos were pretty hungry so be ware and bring some mosquito repellant if you are hiking. around mile 2.5 there is a good climb on single trail but be ware of all the poison oak on the side.

Go left as you go out. The trail switches back and is a significant descent. The way back in is still uphill, but not as challenging. Not all that scenic. But, a good cardio workout in about 2 hours.

The only trail markers are for the 4H camp and the cemetery so it is a good idea to have your phone with GPS to make sure youre on the right path. The trails are basically CA state forrest service roads. The forest is not old growth but there are some great views of Chiles/Pope valley from the eastern portion of the loop.

It's beautiful! Great for beginners and dogs! Be careful, horses occasionally use the trail so make sure dogs are on leash!

Decent hiking, somewhat flat not much to see but forest, good for running/mt biking and dog friendly. Be careful though lots of paths and if you don't pay attention you can get lost!

Wide, gently sloping trails that cross cross. You go left, I'll go right. Some spots were steep "like a roller coaster" my son said. Super fun. Great views of the meadows & cows. Otherwise, forest view. Lots of fern, evergreens, and poison oak! My little dog had an easy time with the walk.

Easy hike. Circled beautiful meadow. Totally unoccupied during week day school hours. Primary use appears to be for bike trail for PUC students.
