The Stockton Creek Preserve surrounds The Stockton Creek Reservoir, provides immediate watershed protection for the town’s primary domestic water resource. The Mariposa County High School track team has been training on the property for years and they can now do so freely as the Preserve is open to the public. Visitors, residents, and students can enjoy a hike just on the edge of town on the network of trails on the preserve. The preserve includes a trail easement donated by the Fischer Family through their adjacent property so that the publicly accessible trails now extend from just above the MCHS to Hwy 140.

Brilliant. Short and easy. Tip! Start from the Mariposa town entrance (near the school). You would have to duck under a wire and get into the area. Soon you’ll come upon a huge water tank. The trail starts from there. Utter bliss. Highly recommend.

Nice trail, maintained, and well marked. First section is single track. There is definitely a nice climb, in several areas. The second half is much gentler, on a access road, though you also have some climbing in this section as well. Worth our time, beautiful views and a good quick work out.
