This forested loop journey with 18 stops is keyed to a free brochure about eastern Sierra ecology. The short walk is a fine complement to a picnic in the park. Walk across the bridge over Galena Creek and soon reach the signed junction between the Nature and Bitterbrush trails. Turn left onto the Galena Creek Nature Trail and proceed a short distance to the start of the loop. Veer left to begin a clockwise loop that initially follows alongside tumbling Galena Creek for about 0.2 mile and then bends north toward the top of a low hill. From the hill, make a short descent to an unmarked junction with the unmaintained path up Black’s Canyon.
