Family Friendly This short path provides a great place to explore, and to connect with other trails.

Description

Soap Plant Trail is a nice little hike that will take you from the neighborhood straight into the "meat" of Foothill. It crosses paths with Alta Vista and ends up merging into Meadow Trail.

It's a low-grade and exposed trail with tall grasses on the south end that eventually give way to the open meadow near the pond. This is a perfect little warm up as you connect to other trails throughout the park!
