Trail Description:
We'd last been on this trail almost a year ago, and there was a profusion of growth with everything, but especially the poison oak. It was so healthy in fact, that it prevented passage to the upper Nature Trail. While the weather had dried up the grasses on the southern end,  it was still rife with Stickey Monkey flowers, Gumplants and Clarkias.
