Toyon-Coal Mine Single Track

Begin at the trailhead across from the parking area. The initial trail (Alpine Trail) is a steep step up with railroad ties to prevent erosion, but the trail afterwards is generally well graded. Almost immediately, the trail intersects with another. If you turn right, the trail narrows and will eventually become a single-track trail suitable only for carriers or backpacks. If you do not turn right, the trail remains wide and is suitable for a baby jogger or other large-wheeled stroller, though there will be some rolling hills to push that stroller up!

From the trailhead (Alpine Trail), turn right and climb a few steps to get to the fun, narrow Toyon Trail. Toyon Trail follows the West ridge of the open space, providing some nice views, a couple of benches along the way, and a couple of cute bridges.

If you want a little more altitude, turn left to connect to Coal Mine Trail (the first two left turn options will bring you to Coal Mine Trail). Coal Mine Trail is also narrow and can make a nice little loop if you take the first left turn well after starting Toyon Trail, to start Coal Mine Trail, then turn right to return to Toyon Trail, then turn right onto Toyon Trail to make the loop. Continue down Toyon to reach the parking lot near the initial trailhead.
