Views of Park Creek Canyon and the Sierra Ancha Mountains. McFadden Peak Lookout Tower. Wildlife includes: mountain lion, black bear, wild turkey, deer, elk, and smaller animals.Vegetation consists of ponderosa pine, pinyon, juniper, gambel oak, scrub oak, and manzanita. This is a very scenic trail.


From State Highway 288 (north of Reynolds Creek and south of the private property) turn left and take Forest Road (FR) 3781- 1/4 mile to Circle Ranch Trailhead. Note: The turn-off to FR 3781 is difficult to see from the highway. FR 3787 is also not appropriate for trailers. The trail runs approximately 1 mile along private property, then climbs through pinyon/juniper woodlands, ponderosa pine and intermittent streams, to McFadden Peck Road/Forest Road (FR) 561. Continue uphill to the end of the road near the Lookout Tower where the parking area is located.
