Route

Route in brief: From the parking lot, walk along Zinfandel Trail all the way. At the 2-mile mark, continue for 0.3 miles along Creek Trail. This trail leads you to a creek next to Stevens Canyon Road. Turn back and retrace your steps to the parking lot. In the Official Trail Map for Picchetti Ranch, Creek Trail is not shown on the map for some reason. It is shown on Trail Map for Stevens Creek Park which is adjacent to Picchetti Ranch.
