Need to Know

There's at least one stream crossing, but it's easy to navigate across rocks.

Description

The trail follows and crosses a small stream that flows from the top of the mountain to the larger creek below. The trail crosses the stream at least once and crossings are simple due to large rocks to step on.

The bottom of the trail is a small drop on one side and a rock wall on the other. The trail was maintained but may be overgrown in a few spots since the trail did not appear to be heavily used.

Poison oak is present along various parts of the trail.

The top of the trail connects into the Wednesday Trail and the bottom connects into the Froom Creek Trail.

There are a few abandoned concrete structures at the top of the trail that appear to have been used to control water flow.

Flora & Fauna

Poison oak is prevalent here.
