About This Trail

[Total: 0    Average: 0/5]

This trail is great for little hikers and really hikers of all ages too! The trail follows along the Thermalito Diversion Pool, which looks like a river full of wildlife! There is also a train track nearby and the trail goes under a train bridge. But the most exciting thing about this trail is that 1.2 miles in is a pretty long tunnel you can walk through. The trail is shaded in some spots, has giant water puddles in the rainy season, and is wide enough for an all terrain stroller to navigate. There are some steep drop off points along the trail, but again the trail is wide enough that it was not an issue for an 18 month old to navigate.

I am a mama of two boys. I love drinking tea and am a better mom when we are outside exploring nature (and when I have tea). I have a family bike and love it. I enjoy baking, cooking, and eating my creations. I love the idea of yoga, but never seem to be consistent in finding time to practice. I love reading, but again rarely find the time. My family just ventured into urban farming. I love sour beers and delicious food. I work for a local non-profit as a training coordinator, and volunteer as a Branch Ambassador for our local HiB community and for the HiB Localized Support National volunteer team.

Getting There

If you cannot find the trailhead, follow directions to the Bath House Museum (but you will drive past it). You got through the roundabout at Montgomery and Table Mountain Blvd. You turn into what appears to be a driveway (Old Ferry Road), but it isn’t! This right turn onto Old Ferry Road is between the main roads of Montgomery and Table Mountain Blvd in the roundabout. You will pass the Bath House Museum and continue until the road dead ends. There is a small post marking the the start of the trail.
