Description

The Dunn Trail, which starts behind the Trudeau Conference Center, starts with an easy half mile followed by a steady uphill. Once you pass the conference center, you immediately pass the Sargent Cypress trees on your left, a California endemic tree with a relatively small distribution.

You then head uphill through the another unique California habitat, Serpentine Prairie. You can stop to read abut this ecosystem on an informational placard. Continue up the Dunn Trail, and you'll pass the junction with the Graham Trail on the left. Stay to the right for a brief downhill section followed by a final climb up to the West Ridge Trail and the Dunn Trail's end.
