Nice walk along wooded creek. Vegetation, flowers and breeze are nice. Caution: Trail that parallels Hwy 52 is actually an unimproved 4WD trail that is much more vertical up and down than contour intervals indicate. Loose rocks and steepness make hike more than a little challenging.

There was a good variety of trails of varying length and difficulty level. The river area was amazing. The wildflowers were beautiful. I would avoid this hike in the summer. Be aware that the long paved path (Father Junipera Serra) does not lead to the better elements of the hike.

Fun trail this time of year with flowing water down the canyon and lots of wildflowers (and a couple of rattlesnakes, so beware). Distance is not 6.8--it is more like 3,5 from this starting point, at most. Fun hike
