California Road Nature Trail climbs from the floor of the canyon following the historic California trail before turning south following an old rail road bed. Wagon ruts are still evident on the west side of the canyon.

Trail is very poorly marked. hard to tell which way to go. A large portion of the trail is not maintained and has tree branches blocking the way and in some cases can't even see where the trail even goes. You may think you are on the right track but will soon see that you may have stumbled onto another trail as the first trail head is doubled marked and information area is not to be found. call in advance as one of the main trails were closed

Stay away from this hike. Zero trail maintenance. Lack of navigational signs. Goathead stickers everywhere. Relentless, giant flies. The main road was the best part of the trip.

Easy to get off the not so well maintained trails.... but I would go back and recommend!

Beautiful! A little hard to follow which trail you are on with multiple options. There are color coded trail markers but I didn't know which was which and never found a key map to explain. But very beautiful scenery and fun all the same.

Maybe due to recent rains but trails very poorly marked. Many downed, dead trees blocking trails. Would never have been able to stay on trail without gps. Trails very good in places, and poor in others. Nice scenery and good mix of shade and sun. Trail just needs some love.

I would have been a lovely hike but was so over ran with sticker bushes my dog couldn't even stand it. You stopped every 10 minutes to pull out bush full of stickers. If you're just hiking without pet and with jeans and boots you'll be fine and it's a gear work out
