Manzanita and Azalea Trails Professional Review and Guide

"This hike is best early in the day, as it traverses a dense slope of manzanita to the top of Park Ridge, then returns to Grant Grove Village via the azaleas along Sequoia Creek. The trail begins by climbing under power lines, curving northward. Meet a service road leading to a water tank and follow the “Manzanita Trail” sign.

Continuing through the trees, the trail passes an old dirt road heading downhill to a small structure and a large water tank. Proceed through a grassy, flowered area to a junction with the Cedar Springs Trail at 0.7 mile. This trail leads back through a residential area and becomes the Crystal Springs Trail on the other side of Panoramic Point Road. As the trail climbs through the dense brush, you will probably come across plump little fox sparrows, or at least hear their sweet song. Nearing the top of Park Ridge, bear clover covers the ground and fills the air with a strong, herbal scent."
