Loop from Morgan Territory Road trailhead. Incredible December hike with our recent dry weather. Excellent views, some fun single track, beautiful rock outcroppings, and only saw one other person for my 8.7 mile hike. Highly recommend this hike for this time of year.

We started at the end of Finley Road, went up to the Old Finley Road, continued on the Oyster Point Trail and finally reached the peak of Oyster Point (Elv. 2,106 ft). This was an out-and-back hike with spectacular views. Total distance was 8.9 mile with elevation gain of 1,568 ft.

Good trip. Fair amount of bikes on the weekend

Trail from Finley Road trailhead is now accessible! Bob's pond approach on Tassajara Creek Trail from north has a washout, but is passable. The trail from the picnic table to Riggs Canyon Road has a few downed trees, but again is passable. Watch out for poison oak!!

Trail is washed out about 1 mile in and completely impassable right now. Will need extensive repairs.

We parked at the end of the Finley Road and hiked up to the Old Finley Road Trail. We supposed to turn right onto the Sulphur Springs trail but we missed it. So we turned and went down to the Walnut Trail. We followed the Walnut Trail and hiked up to the Highland Ridge Trail. From the Highland Ridge Trail we hiked back to the he Old Finley Road Trail. In this loop we had some shades and some very nice views. The hike was a moderate workout. My AllTrails record showed total 6.8 miles with 1214 feet elevation. We completed the hike in two and half hours with couple short breaks. I totally enjoyed.

One of our favorites, especially the Tassajara Creek section. A picnic table at Bob's Pond for a mid hike break.
