FALLEN BRIDGE TRAIL

May 14,  2009

Trail Description:
Fallen Bridge takes a nice mountainous loop that ranges from meadows to Redwoods. There is an elevation gain from about 800 feet at the parking lot to 1300 feet at the highest point. But much of the trail is through dense woodlands and shaded canyons, which makes it a good warm weather hike.
