Description

From the parking area, find the well defined trail at the southeast corner of the parking lot. The trail fluctuates between double and singletrack as it gradually descends down through two patches of trees and hits the first estuary. Cross the bridge and continue to wrap and climb around Home Bay.

Repeat this same descend and climb routine for the next two estuaries before starting a moderate climb to the high point at ~240 feet. From here its a nice flowy descent down to the intersection with the Muddy Hollow trail. Estero continues on from here but is off limits to cyclists. Continue on Muddy Hollow or turn around and return.
