Brookbank Trail Professional Review and Guide

"This short hike heads up a historic wagon road in the Dry Lake Hills. The hike ends at a seasonal lake and meadow with nice views of San Francisco Mountain. The Dry Lake Hills get their name from several meadows that lie on the summit plateau. Early in the season, after the snow melts, the meadows become seasonal lakes. As the lakes dry up, the meadows in turn become a riot of wildflowers.

Although there are no restrictions on hiking at present, this could change in the future. Always respect private property and obey all signs, if posted."

"This is a short hike up a historic wagon road on the Dry Lake Hills. The hike ends at a seasonal lake and meadow with nice views of San Francisco Mountain. The present trail follows an old wagon road up an unnamed canyon and climbs the south-facing slopes via several switchbacks. Apparently, an early settler built the old road in order to reach the meadows that enhance the top of the Dry Lake Hills.

This meadow is private land. Although there are no restrictions on hiking at present, this could change in the future. Always respect private property and obey all signs, if posted."

It's rather steep and rocky going up the hill, so wear hiking boots. It's beautiful when you get to the top. There's a grassy meadow with a small pond. My dog LOVED it.
