Especially in the fall the last of the leaves are turning and the forest Smells so fresh. Easy half hour walk for all ages and pets on leash are welcome.

The loop was so relaxing and pretty. I want to come back during the spring and see the flowers in bloom and all the trees with their leaves.

Short loop trail a little under a mile long. A few burned Sequoia trees and many pines trees. Saw blue jays here. Some picnic tables.
