After a while the trail opens up into a field. Not pictured are many of the nice wildflowers!

A great spot to eat lunch before heading back down the trail.

Notes on the track: I did the track below out and back (this is actually a little longer than I intended since I had to backtrack to the parking lot after I started to grab something from my car). According to the trailhead map above, there is a loop, but I could not find it.

Total distance: 2.62 mi
