Overview

This trail is also called the Burnham Creek Trail on some maps and can be done in any direction. It is not really a destination trail, but it does not allow bikes and can be used to connect other nearby trails. Starting from a signed intersection with the Aqueduct Trail, head into the stand of scrub oak trees and up a gentle incline. Cross a small footbridge and thread through a small granite rock garden. The trail joins the Gas Line Trail briefly, crosses a larger bridge and immediately turns back downhill for the second leg of the Burnham Loop Trail. This trail portion is even shorter, paralleling and crossing another creek with running water, even as late as October.
