This counter-clockwise loop starts from the Zwierlein Picnic Area on the NE corner of Huddart Park, connecting the Crystal Springs Trail to the Dean Trail. Crystal Springs is a very nicely maintained trail that travels through dense forests of redwood and fir trees, over creeks and up steep ravines for approximately 2.7 miles before intersecting the upper section of the Dean trail. At this junction, prepare for a steady decent on the 2.2 miles back to the ranger station (as the signs read). Of the two trails, Crystal Springs provides a more natural setting since Dean crosses roads, passes through picnic areas and nearby traffic can be heard outside the park. A word of caution: Get a map from the ranger and bring it with you, there are several trails that intersect throughout the park and without a map it's sure to get confusing.

*This description may be the same as the Huddart Park Trail, without any information posted I decided to add a little bit more detail.

    WARNING! Hiking and outdoor related sports can be dangerous. Be responsible and prepare for the trip. Study the area you are entering and plan accordingly. Dress for the current and unexpected weather changes. Take plenty of water. Never go alone. Make an itinerary with your plan(s), route(s), destination(s) and expected return time.
