The trail is so wonderful! They just grated it and added what I call speed bumps...Fun to jump! However, they are there to divert water.
This is a shady trail that goes through a grove of newly planted baby sequoias.
The views are spectacular - passing a large private property called the Kramer Meadow,
The grated road is like a roller coaster ride and the hills are not hard to climb.
Passing caves, giant rocks and catching amazing views in the distance. This road is actually below the Needles and if you go the other direction you can bike to The Needles, if you're up to it! You can also get to the Needles Creek for a swim if you take a left on Needle Rock Rd. See trail map. Then get amazing views of the Needles above you.
