Nice trail for hiking or mountain biking. Two trailheads. One off Walter Boardman Ln which connects to the Bulow Trail, and one in Fairchild Oak Park. All three can be done as one continuous trail as well. The 1.8 miles was only one way, so there and back would be 3.6 miles, for this section.

This is one of my favorite places to hike. There are so many butterflies and other wildlife around. Plus the foliage is beautifully mixed with palms, pines, and oaks that provide the perfect amount of shading and density that it feels like you're in a jungle. Note with all the water that there are spots that get muddy but manageable. I always use bug spray but did not notice an issue with mosquitoes.

Fun trail with a ton of flora and fauna. terrain varies: sugar sand, hard pack, and can get a bit muddy in spots.

decent ride too short for my liking but was peaceful my diamondback 29er handled the roots and ruts fine but I can't say much for my wife's Avalon 26er she had a hard time with it do to not being able to switch through gears properly but all in all it was a fun place to ride

The track shown in the present Track is not Fairchild Oak Trail it is the Bulow Trail. The Fairchild Oak Trail isn a loop that has has a red blaze. It is a loop of about one mile with two trailheads at the 90 degree turn in the Bulow Trail one headed East and the other South. It is an easy trail well kept up and can be reached from Bulow Trail at Board-man Ln. or at Fairchild Oak Park.

Nice trail for a quick ride, or hike. Part of the birding trail. Nice wooden bridge in the middle that opens up on either side to a nice marsh view.
