After wet weather, this trail is very muddy or wet and can be impassible. It is the drainage channel that all of the washes feed into.

Description

This trail parallels the Levee Trail at the southern border of the park. You can hike either one, but the Levee Trail is a gravel road on top of the levee while the Channel Trail is soft dirt. There are a few places where the trail goes over a rise to go around a couple of dams within the channel. Be safe and follow the trail. Going over the dams is possible, but nobody wants to fall onto concrete.

Many people hike the Levee Trail, but there is not a lot of traffic on this one.

Flora & Fauna

In the spring, a lot of wildflowers usually grow in the channel.
