Description [Suggest Changes]

Ride roughly .65 miles from the parking lot along the Juan Bautista de Anza Trail to Arastradero Lake. Just past the lake, the Arastradero Creek Trail cuts off to the left and passes a utility station that sits on the right hand side of the trail. The trail is about 8-10 foot wide and made of gravel for the majority of its length, providing a great surface for hikers, runners, mountain bikers, and horseback riders. On the left side of the trail, the Arastradero Creek follows the trail for almost its entire length, although it is down in a gully. On the right side of the trail, the hills rise above the trail offering views of wildflowers that bloom in the spring.

Hard Pack and thick pea gravel in spots. Nice fire road with access to other side trails.
