Description

Take the Juan Bautista de Anza Trail until it breaks off to the right and follows the Arastradero Road. The Woodland Star Trail breaks off to the left and begins to climb at a gentle rate. Following a dry creek bed, unless it's been raining, the trail crosses over a culvert and continues until it reaches the intersections with the Bay Laurel Trail. The trail breaks off to the right and begins to climb out of the forest.

Wildflowers can be seen in the early spring on either side of the trail. The trail takes a couple of switchbacks before emerging on a ridge that that offers great views of the forests and surrounding areas. Birds can be seen flying around the area before the trail meets up with the Meadowlark Trail under a big shade tree where a bench provides an opportunity to rest and take in the view.

Once you have taken a break and possibly had a snack, you can turn back and retrace your steps. Another option is to take the Meadowlark Trail and explore other areas of the park.
