Sunday August 4, 2013
My Tripometer: 1 Hour * 2.5 Miles * +175 Feet
About 20 minutes from my hotel, here is a link with the address and some info. You can Google this area and find more information as well. For me, this was just a random green plot on the GPS near my hotel and I picked it for the morning wake up...
|Trailhead - Millennium Trail|
|Heading downhill into the open space...|
From the trailhead there are other options. Mountain bikers in the area took a higher route and based on the map it all loops around and goes through Goodan Ranch. However, the road is a direct route to the ranch, just over a mile of some easy down hill...
|Cedar Fire burnt the area in 2003|
|Trail Junctions - various ways you can go...|
|heading into the ranch - Visitor Center...|
|Stone House built by Roger & May Goodan|
|Trail continues beyond the ranch, but I turned back|
|Back up the hill into the morning fog...|
