“Explore a wooded canyon with old oak trees.”— Wendy Wheeler
When you hit the reed pond at the end of the trail, turn around and head back 0.73 miles to the Artemisia Trail. The trail is steep and has great views of the bay and the wooded canyon. Cyclists speed down the trail from Skyline Blvd, so stay to the right side of the trail.
After finishing the Artemisia Trail out and back, head toward the Pyrite Trail, which is the most beautiful trail in the park. The old oak trees provide a canopy of shade on a hot summer day and make for a peaceful place to hike.
