It had just rained and a lot of the portions of the trail were rutted quite deeply and other portions were overgrown. Annie’s Loop was particularly dense and there were fallen trees across some portions. All that being said, it’s a rewarding hike with lots of beautiful views! It just needs to be said that it needs some TLC. I donated to the box and the trail head so hopefully it goes to some much needed restorations.

Good hike/trail run.
As previously mentioned the top of the trail is marked private property by UC Davis.

This is a great hike, but the original track had a couple of additional miles. The trail is blocked on the South end as it’s UC Davis’s private property. We only ended up with about 8 miles and just under 2,500 elevation gain. We did the hike clockwise. I recommend doing the hike this way as the steps and climb up can be slippery and it’s steeper. Can be dangerous if wet, as it was today. It’s easier to go up this way as opposed to climbing down. The hike down from the ridge at the end of the hike is more gradual and it has more switchbacks.

Property recently purchased by local non-profit Tuleyome.org to expand Stebbins Cold Canyon hiking area. The trail to Tuleyome Peak is an extension of the Annie's Rock Trail. Much of the trail beyond the Annie's Rock trail is on an access road.
