Reverse loop, using Serpentine Loop Trail and Longwall Canyon Trail along the valley bottom, then up and around Mayfair Ranch Trail back to the car park.

The Old Cattle Chute
The Old Cattle Chute. I take a photo of it almost every time I pass.

Longwall Canyon Trail along the valley bottom.

Sky by the Creek
Looking up at the perfectly blue California sky between the trees. This is while crossing the trail the second time.

Trail Going Up
Mayfair Ranch Trail starts heading up to the top of the ridge.

Mount Umumhum
Mount Umumhum is reasily recognized from many vantage points.

Coyote Mint
Coyote Mint, Monardella villosa, has airy, mauve flowers. The leaves smell of tar.

Casa Loma Road Barn I
On the way out, I stopped the car at the old barn on Casa Loma Road to take some photos.

Casa Loma Road Barn II
I love coming round the bend and seeing the barn framed by the oaks.
