Features Views · Wildlife

Wunderlich is closed to bikes, but most of the park - including this trail - is open to equestrians.

Description

The top of this trail winds through chaparral as it heads away from Skyline Blvd. Soon you'll enter mixed evergreen forest as you continue descending into thicker tree cover. The upper portion of this trail has more ruts and roots than most others in the park, so watch your footing, especially after heavy rains.

Otherwise, it's a pleasant descent on wide doubletrack all the way down to The Crossroads, with no trail junctions to worry about until then, so just relax and enjoy the trail.

Flora & Fauna

Second and third generation redwood forest, evergreen forest, chaparral. Poison oak can be plentiful, but trails are generally clear. You might see deer (very common), raccoons, black squirrels, and occasionally a bobcat, fox, coyote, or even mountain lion (very rare).
