The Place

On our way down we will enter the cool shaded trails with aromas from the California Bay and Live Oaks. When the trails are dry the footprints of turkeys, wild pigs and coyotes are abundant. After a short 300 to 350 ft climb up Peters Creek Trail we will reach Long Ridge, hence the name, a gorgeous long flat walk with opportunities for great viewgasms. Ferns and moss covered rocks line the trail back down to the trailhead. As most hikers will agree a good hike ends downhill as with this one.
