TURNBULL CANYON ON TOP OF RATTLESNAKE RIDGE TRAIL (my video published on YouTube)

Turnbull Cyn Trail-Rattlesnake Ridge

Turnbull Cyn Trail-Rattlesnake Ridge

This trail is easily accessible and practicable on foot and on bike. On the map bellow you can see the distances, as well as the difficulty. You can have 2 hours of fun, no winding trails, starting with Turnbull Cyn. which is the easiest portion of the trip (1.6 mile). It is shaded by nice tall trees, some of them eucalypti. It can be jogged (if you’re in a hurry), or walked as slow as your hear desire. I notices a coyote, on  the hill  to left. I had a walking stick, which I would have used to scare it away, but there was no need for any of that.

I enjoyed the display showing a the flora and fauna of these hills and  was uplifted especially by the “Leave only Footprints” poster.

NOw this here is a nice uphill of about 0.5 miles, also it makes a nice downhill too. I got some members of the group I was waling (some were jogging) with. We had a great time.

With all the signs in place not only you can’t get lost, but you can write home ( or blog) about the places you’ve seen: A real Veni, vidi, vici, kind of implement. Yes I got a bottle of water, glucose, but no, no raincoat (no way was it going to rain that day).

    • Thanks for your comment John. The video is from last October. Due to health problems I had to rest and recover since. But I just restarted, last week. In fact I just got back from the trail, got some nice shots, with my Nikon, and will post them Later today!
