Purisima Creek Trail

Begin at the Skyline Trailhead, and head West, following the trail marked Purisima Creek Trail / Bay Area Ridge Trail. Follow the trail down, down, downhill as long as you like, minding the occasional rut or rock in the middle of the trail. Return the way you came, but remember that doing so will be uphill!

Alternatively, begin at the Higgins Purisima Road Trailhead, and walk straight, following signs for the Purisima Creek Trail / Bay Area Ridge Trail. Enjoy walking alongside the pretty creek, then hike uphill as long as you like, minding the occasional rocks or ruts in the middle of the trail. Return the way you came, downhill.
