Parked at the turn where there is a walk-in point to Los Posades State Forrest. I love the up and down terrain along the way to the Eisenhower experiemental forrest. The trails are mainly fire roads which makes for easy navigation. None of the trails are marked with signs but I attend the 4H summer camp as a chaperone and am familiar with the area so we hiked down into the camp and completed our loop up the fire road, passed the department of forestry station and back out to the road. Love the hike from either direction, a little up hill and down hill, as well as plenty of shade.

Great, wide trails, but none are marked. I found it very easy to take the wrong trail, would have. een lost w/out GPS.
Lots of shade, going through the woods, a few gills to contend with, but overall, very nice.

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.
