Lovely ducks and geese. The yellow wild flowers are awesome!

Not a trail so much as a rocky gravel and dirt service road for sewer and power lines, this route offers solitude, interesting vegetation, good bird and wildlife watching, and a seasonal stream that runs near, next to, or possibly on the "trail." Unfortunately, the route is eroded and unpleasantly rocky, washed out, or muddy after recent rains. It also runs past sewer mains and under power lines, both of which are an eyesore. The upper route of the lollipop loop had beautiful wildflowers when I hiked it in late March, but sadly the upper route is overgrown to the point of being uncomfortable. So while this route offers several interesting and possibly beautiful scenes, I can't give it more than 3 stars considering its significant issues.

NOTE: $3 for parking, cash only - no change

Streams, waterfall. About 7 miles roundtrip. Several side paths that all lead you back to the main path. Green all around, wide path, dogs on leash allowed.

Strollers (jogging) and mountain bikes. Kids and dog loves it. If you want to play on the water fall, bring change of shoes.

Easy bike ride, pretty views with the flowers blooming.
