Overview

This short, intermediate loop provides a quick climb and then descent around the hills on Lynch Canyon. From the top, there are some great views of Vallejo and American Canyon. This is a working ranch, so expect to encounter some cattle, too.

Need to Know

Goatheads are found in the area. Definitely bring spare tubes. There is very little shade so the area can get quite hot in the spring and summer.

Description

Starting from the parking lot, go left on the South Valley Trail. Loop around the hill past Kestrel Trail and then Prairie Ridge Trail. At the Saddle Trail and Middle Valley Trail junction, keep to the right on the Middle Valley Trail. Slow down or walk if cattle are out and make sure to always close the cattle gates behind you.

The next "Y" connects the Middle Valley Trail to the Tower Trail on the left (If you want more uphill go that way, it connects to North Ridge Loop and Lynch Road to go back to the parking lot). Otherwise, keep following the Middle Valley Trail back to Lynch Road, as mapped, to return to the parking area.
