» Official Trail Map: Acceptable quality map but does not have mileage information of diferent trail sections.
» Redwood Hikes Map for Butano: An awesome map by Dave Baselt. Thanks, Dave! This map also shows the 1.7 mile long Candleabra Trail, which is missing in the official trail map.
» Redwood Hikes Map: Bay Area Trail Map: Saratoga to Big Basin, First edition, 2010. This is an excellent map sold by Dave Baselt ($6.95 in Dec 2011). This map is useful for exploring many parks in this area. Highly recommended for avid hikers.
To Indian Trail (4.7 miles): From the parking lot behind the entrance kiosk, follow Jackson Flats Trail (0.8 miles) to intersection with Mill Ox Trail. Continue along Jackson Flats Trail (1.4 miles) to intersection with Canyon Trail. Turn right onto Canyon Trail (2.5 miles) to reach an intersection with Indian Trail.
To Entrance Kiosk (4.4 miles): From the intersection of Canyon Trail and Indian Trail, continue along Indian Trail (0.5 miles) → right onto Olmo Fire Road (0.3 miles) → right on Doe Ridge Trail (keep an eye out for this intersection) (1.7 miles) → left on Goat Hill Trail (0.5 miles) → right on Olmo Fire Road (0.2 miles) → continue along Ano Nuevo Trail (1.2 miles) to return to entrance kiosk.
Notes: In Dec 2012, the western section of Jackson Flats Trail presented many obstacles. A storm had felled many trees. All other trails were in excellent condition. Jackson Flats Trail goes through a forest, completely shaded. Canyon Trail goes through a combination of forest cover and valley views. On the way back to the entrance kiosk, Olmo Fire Road offers great views of Santa Cruz Mountains in the south. Doe Ridge Trail is a fantastic trail going through redwoods. Butano Creek Trail is another fine trail that meanders next to Little Butano Creek, crossing it a few times. Ano Nuevo Trail is particularly steep, losing 800 ft in 0.8 miles as it descends to entrance kiosk.
