“While much of Slavin Ranch centers on the wetlands, this trail moves through forest and basalt.”— Carol Christensen
After about half a mile, the trail intersects with Diamond Lane Connector where you can either link back up with the main loop and move back toward the water or you can continue on East Alternate for some "high" views of the area. While there is almost no elevation gain/loss in the entire area, this trail will give you the best approximation of a "bird's eye view" in this conservation area.
Once you've crossed the open meadow on the south side of Diamond Lane Connector, you'll move into a wooded area and up a hill to an open area with scrub brush and basalt rock features. The trail then moves gradually back down the hill and once more reconnects with the Main Loop.
This can either be done as an out-and-back or looped in with the Main Loop to maximize your mileage and views of the area.
