“A flat, relatively easy trail connecting the Alahambra Staging Area to the Pine Tree Trail.
— Kristen Arendt
A short, relatively easy trail close to the parking lot that can make a good out and back or be the start of a short loop.
Starting from the Alahambra Creek Staging Area, the Orchard Trail
heads out on a gentle incline through a mostly open, grassy area with some trees. The trail is wide and well-kept like many of the trails in Briones Regional Park.
At just past 3/4 of a mile, the trail turns north and descends briefly before connecting with the Pine Tree Trail
at the park office.
