Added by Elena Pearson

A county park with trails winding through the woods west of Saratoga.

This is a moderately rated 4.2 mile trail that winds through the redwoods west of Saratoga.  It features a dirt trail with tall trees and a creek.  The hike is very tranquil and there is lot s of greenery.  There are big rocks in the creek that can you can sit on.  People often meditate here as it is very peaceful and relaxing with the sound of the creek and birds.

It is not as crowded during weekdays.  The trail is dog friendly.

Parking is very limited at the trailhead.  It's mostly street parking along a small windy road.
