Awesome day after a big rain. Still windy with squalls, but oh so fresh.

Looks beautiful! Too bad we won’t be able to see it-we’re only visitors! We’ll be visiting invalid father-in-law in Palo Alto who may not even recognize us anymore, so a nice trail would have been therapeutic. I guess the high prices we’ll be paying for dinner and a hotel in Palo Alto can’t buy us the privilege of enjoying this place!

No dogs allowed at this trail. Also it’s says Palo Alto residents and guests only allowed on this park. Ended up having to turn around.

Great trail but this is not a place to bring your dog as the trail prohibits dogs explicitly and I found out the hard way (a $300 fine)

Mostly covered. The back half of the trail is currently closed but you can cut down the fire trail and still do a loop so you don’t need to double back.

Its NOT dog friendly, as described. We arrived and had to take alternate trails. Los Trancos is specifically no-dog.
