Need to Know
The Long Bunny Loop and it's shorter Short Bunny Loop partner previously started at a marked trailhead along the West Fork of Adobe Creek, just beyond an area of large rocks. That trail stub is now closed before it crosses the creek, as the crossing was eroding into the creek and was no longer safe for hikers. Now the Bunny Loop trails start at the trailhead marked Bypass Trail.
To reach the trailhead, hike along the Main Path Road towards the back of the farm, passing the Hostel on your left. Continue along the road to the Y. Bear left at the Y, passing the White Barn on your left. The White House on the right was a hotel during the Stagecoach era. It is now private housing for Hidden Villa staff.
Continue past the White Barn goat pen to enter a large tree-lined area along the creek. This area is called the Promenade. This path is part of the original path of Moody Road. There are benches and picnic tables on the Promenade which are nice places to stop and reflect, or eat a snack or lunch.
About 2/3 of the way to the two bridges, look for the trailhead on your right labeled Bypass Trail. This is where the Bunny Loop trails start. The initial climb takes some switchbacks to ascend the side of the hill under the cover of Bay and Oak trees.
Continue on a long traverse across the side of the hill. There are some nice views of the valley of Adobe Creek. At the highest point on the traverse, there is a nice view of San Francisco Bay and a wooden bench to sit on. (It is about halfway along the traverse).
Continue along the traverse and you'll arrive in the valley of the North Fork of Adobe Creek. Take a few switchbacks down, then continue along this branch of the creek. You'll arrive behind the Duveneck House right after the formal trail ends. Continue around tomthe front of the house. Take the bridge on your right down to the road. Tien left and go about 100 yards to return to the Y junction where you started.
