Trail shared by Nathan Delaney

A great trail that takes you through some coastal oaks.

Description

Another great part of the quarry trails. Access to this trail is either off of the Chumash Trail or the Park Ridge Trail. There are a couple great challenging climbs or downhill sections off of this.

Several wood bridges, one of which has a bend and currently a missing board. This is one of my favorite trails as we almost always see larger wildlife. About a half mile into the trail, you'll encounter a left turn to do a challenging climb up the Upper Crespi Trail; I highly recommend for the views near the top.

A little past this intersection there will be a connector trail off to the right which is very rocky and a steep descent. Continue on the main stretch of trail which will bring you down to the oak section. Once ride up through the oaks you'll have a nice long fast descent to the Chumash Trail.
