Description

You can simply park your car along the side of the highway and step out into the meadow and find a couple of well marked trails that lead into the fields. The narrow trail takes you on a short and scenic route through the meadow and trees, perfect for a quick outing.

The trail eventually makes a little U-turn and then turns you back around to bring you back to the starting point. It's a great opportunity to sit in the meadow to meditate, relax, get fresh air, and even spot some prairie dogs along the way!

Flora & Fauna

Lots of beautiful lush grass and wildflowers, and beautiful redwood trees in the distance.
