Miners Ravine Reserve in Rocklin, CA
The trail heading south of the parking is posted. It is wide and well maintained.
A real oak leaf, not poison oak. (I didn't see any poison oak,
but it loves this area, so do watch for it.)
Signs like this are part of the interpretive loop.
From the north side of the parking lot is a short loop that is well shaded and
offers recognition in the form of a plaque and a bench.
I was surprised to see this bloom so late and with so much "weather" lately.
They are quite beautiful and colorful!
This section is typical of what to expect. The benches may be damp or wet this time of year (autumn) but are serene places to sit and enjoy the fresh air and wild outdoor setting.
This is the memorial bench.
There are some blooms and lots of autumn color amidst the thick blanket of berry briars. Along the creek cattails are tall but few. You can take your dogs for walks on these trails.
