“A scenic loop around one of the wetland areas in Yolo Basin on a wide path with wildlife viewing.”— Zander Göpfert
Bring binoculars or a viewing scope as this is one of the best places to spot birds and wildlife for hundreds of miles around.
After a few hundred yards, the Pedestrian Trail will bend to the right and head south along the east side of the wetland. Continue for three-quarters of a mile until you arrive at parking lot "C". From this lot, the route continues south on the wider, dirt access road, which can be fairly dusty, though not very busy with traffic. This wide road makes for a great group-hike as visitors can travel three or four across.
Another two-thirds of a mile from parking lot "C" you'll arrive at an intersection with an east-west autoroute, however, there is an access road that travels diagonally through the wetland back up to parking lot "B". Head northwest on this track for 1.5 miles and return to your vehicle.
