Hiking Trails

Welcome to our newly expanded trails featuring an upper trail, lower trail, switch backs, sitting areas, viewpoints, and interpretive signs. Our trails are open to everyone, but please be considerate of others and keep your dog leashed at all times when using the trails. This park offers multiple options for hiking. The lower loop is an easier gently sloping trail with oak trees, sage, volcanic rock formations, and more. The upper loop is a moderate hike, over 1 mile in length, with an approximate 600 foot vertical differential. UPPER HIKING TRAIL LOOP CLOSED DUE TO DAMAGE FROM HILL FIRE. Lower trail loop is open for use.
