Description

Islay Creek Road is not a destination trail by itself but serves as a great connector between Hazard Peak Trail/East Boundary Trail/Barranca Trail and Pecho Valley Road–a worthy final leg of a loop with Hazard Peak.

The entry to Islay Creek Road lies between Hazard Peak Trailhead and Islay Creek Campground/Spooners Cove. There is a small turnout that offers parking directly across from the road or parking is available at Hazard Peak Trailhead. Alternatively, if hiking from the top down, Barranca Trail and East Boundary Trail both terminate into Islay Creek Road. Simply take a right and continue downhill.

Islay Creek Road is a service road that parallels Islay Creek and runs through a canyon with the Oats Peak Ridge on one side and Hazard Peak Ridge on the other. The dirt is fairly hard packed and generally stays dry after a rain. Its grade is moderate and offers some light rollers. The road does not have good views of the ocean but the final section overlooking Islay Creek Campground is surprisingly beautiful.
