Follow Adobe Creek through an idyllic glen, and hike through historic ranchlands to the oldest standing structures in Riverside County. The pastoral landscape is rustic and stunning. Starting on the Coyote Trail, a gentle climb heads southward and into the rolling hills of the Santa Rosa Plateau. The route follows old roads and trails used by cattle ranchers dating back to the early 1800s. The region is very well signed, almost too well signed, and there are many overlapping trails that can lead to the same location. In some ways this makes the trail signs a bit confusing. Although there isn’t much chance for getting lost, unplanned exploration is a distinct possibility on the preserve.
