Detailed Trail Descriptions from Our Guidebooks

Jerry Schad and David Money Harris
"On this hike or ride (mountain bikes are welcome on the specific route described here) you’ll pass through two very different kinds of natural habitat: first, a scruffy mix of drought-resistant coastal sage-scrub and chaparral plants on the sunny hillsides and ridges; second, the moisture-loving oak-and-sycamore woodlands along Bell Canyon."
"This hike leaves behind (but returns to) the mellow woodlands in the bottom of Bell Canyon and travels the park’s high country. This high country isn’t all that high—less than 1,000 feet in elevation) but in the case of East Ridge is high enough to offer some fine views of the noted groves of sycamore and coastal live oak along the river terraces below. True to its name, the trail (2.5 miles one way) traverses Bell Canyon’s eastern ridge, a landscape cloaked with chaparral and dotted with prickly pear cactus. The trail links to five more paths that in turn connect to Bell Canyon, so loop opportunities are many and varied. Hike a shorter loop than the one described by descending from East Ridge to the canyon bottom via Quail Run Trail or Sun Rise Trail."
