California Parks Visitor Reviews
Looks like a good hike, but... - ...who wrote that description?! Yikes.
3/18/2014 1:38:38 AM Lower Klamath National Wildlife Refuge by west county hawk watch
top notch - been there 20 times in last 25 years, never fails always cool stuff to see. seen 100s of Bald Eagles on each trip, excellent views of Rough-legged Hawks, Red-tailed Hawks, Northern Harriers, Prairie Falcons, Golden Eagles, Ferruginous Hawks, Merlin. Kestrel. Rare sightings of Red-shouldered Hawks, Peregrine, White-tailed kite, Coopers Hawk. The Lower K, along with Butte Valley just south off the HWY 97, is a great case study in aging Bald Eagles, with so many present it is easy to learn all the color phases and patterns because of the sheer numbers of sightings. Best place on earth, for me.

A Great Park! - After doing an ecology project about the Marin Islands with a few of my fellow classmates, we have come to understand all the efforts that go into making a refuge successful. We kindly thank you for your efforts in supporting this refuge.

tree fallen across Malibu Springs Trail - Today, 10 Sept. 2013, about a mile up from Mulholland Dr., my fellow hikers and I encountered a tree that had fallen across the Malibu Springs Trail. Passage around this is quite difficult. I suggest that a crew be sent there with a chain saw to clear the trail. Ernie Scheuer, Sierra Club Hike Leader

A beautiful walk & bikes allowed too - The main purpose of this area is protection of wildlife & watershed for the water needs of San francisco and San Mateo counties. The San Andreas trail & connecting Crystal Spring trails run through it. (10+ miles long). Bikes allowed on both trails. Beautiful Picnic areas & a few geology lessons too. Wildlife abounds as well.

Los Posadas is open to the public. - While living in Angwin I often ride my horse or run on the fire roads and trails located in Los Posadas State Forest. Park at the trail head at the sharp right turn.

Great for all ages - Impressive park, breath-taking trees, knowledgeable guides, and information attractive to all ages. Loved it, and I enjoyed that it was not crowded.

Advanced Hikers only - I have climbed many mountain ranges in the Salzkammergut Austria and let me assure you; this climb is a strenuous trek if you plan on hiking the full range from table rock along the palisades ; this trail is not well marked and has a fallen tree over the trail difficult to cross the trail gave way for me in two places and has steep climbs along the way very little shade on the back side. There are 3 springs along this trail they are unreachable at the top however so bring 2 gallons of water minimum. Steep climb in the beginning trail is sometimes not marked well until table rock is reached. Palisades trail is rugged and sits against mountains difficult to keep footing . A few areas to break for lunch if you think you have the time. Once off the Palisades the trail winds around Holmes place and the option for Aetna Springs trail to the left if you parked on that side good thing Aetna Springs Rd will be a shorter route and The Oat Hill mine Trail to the right. It is a long descent which lacks mile markers as well as direction signs . Not for the elderly ! A long agenizing five mile descent down the old mine trail with rocks all the way. Takes 2 hours if you are moving fast. Drops you at the foot of the trail across the street is a pizza restaurant if you have the strength to cross the street. Total climb is around 10.5 miles Start climb no later than 7:30am The entire climb could take 10 hour with lunch. *** The views and scenery are breathtaking however! Gorgeous vistas!
