“Travel along rushing Adobe Creek (in season) through shady woodland and return along a higher route.”— Deborah B
Free trail maps are available at the kiosk. Water is available at the corner of the Educational Garden, across the bark chip area from the kiosk. Bicycle parking is available in this area.
Take a water break at the junction with the higher Pipeline Trail. Return along the higher Pipeline Trail. You'll see occasional views of Elephant Mountain and the other hills in the Adobe Creek watershed. As you descend the switchbacks you'll hear the creek below you. Welcome back to the creek, almost exactly where you started.
