This is a fantastic trail in which you walk through open grasslands and oak woods and you are always surrounded by the forest covered hills. You can also access the park's group camping area on this trail as well as the out and back Fox Tail Trail. The majority of the elevation is right at the start and then (because it is a loop) right at the end. Plenty of Brush Rabbits and other wildlife to spot. Also some turn of the century farming equipment here and there since this was once a working ranch/farm.
