Short and charming, this interpretive trail through the site of an ancient Ohlone village opens a window into the lives of the prehistoric people that called this peaceful creekside site home. So informative and lovely you’ll want to do laps, the interpretive trail through Chitactac Adams Heritage County Park immerses visitors in the story of the Ohlone people and in the natural environment they occupied. The trail is so short and well defined it’s impossible to get lost, but it’s so packed with information and beautiful scenery it deserves your undivided attention. Indeed, you may be so drawn in by the spectacular setting, with Uvas Creek pooling in a lush bottomland at the base of an impressive rock outcroppings, that you may miss fascinating details about how the Indians utilized the creek and the creatures and plants that thrive by it.
