Description

The trailhead for the Aliso Interpretive Trail lies at the upper portion of the Sage Hill Campground. From here, head north following the trail. After crossing Aliso Creek two times you'll come across a juncture with the Aliso Loop Trail 1/4 of a mile from the trailhead. Continue straight ahead on the Aliso Interpretative Trail.

The trail then crosses the creek a few times before leaving the base of the canyon. At this point the trail climbs steadily up the shale hillside before taking you around the edge of a meadow. Continuing along the trail further, to mile 1.5 where there will be a trail junction between the Upper Oso Trail and the Aliso Loop Trail. The Aliso Interpretive Trail ends here. You can return back to the trailhead the way you came or link up with one of these other trails to make a looped hike.

Thanks to John McKinney, The Trailmaster, for sharing this trail description. To learn more about trails in California, check out his guides at The Trailmaster Store.

Flora & Fauna

California poppies, blue-eyed grass, and popcorn flower can be found in the meadow area.
