Route

Route in brief: From the parking lot, go along Brushy Peak Loop Trail. Take right on West Side Loop Trail and return to parking lot.

Notes: After rains, the trails were muddy but lush green meadows and views of silicon valley in the distance were breath-taking! Plus, we got to say 'Hi' to cows grazing on hills — sometimes, they are found partying on hiking trails.
