Small parking lot, with overflow parking about 0.4 mi away at Foothill college. The initial 0.9 miles is a steep incline. When you turn off towards Hidden Villa after 0.4 miles, you make your way down again to the creek. With all of the rain right now, it is a very relaxing trail along the creek, until you head up Ewing Hill, and then make your way back. When it is hot outside, portions are under direct sun and can be pretty hot.
