“A popular unpaved trail that runs along a developing desert wetland.”— Brendan Ross
Parking areas for the trail are at either end. From the north side, a dirt trail switches back from the lot up to the trail; a shortcut on the other end of the lot goes straight up the bank. It's a three-mile gravel hike to the other end, with the back of retail businesses on the right and open space to the left. A small shaded bench next to the southern parking area marks the end of the trail.
