The main gate on the Entry Road (Roxy Ann Road) is typically open 8am to 8pm in the spring and summer and closes at 5pm in fall and winter. If this gate is closed, you may continue into the park without a vehicle. You may park along the Entry Road or at the electric substation as long as there is accessibility for maintenance vehicles and you are not blocking gates. Please be aware that quarry trucks use this road system.

Need to Know

Gate hours may vary depending on weather and maintenance needs. Many trails here become very muddy when wet and are closed at those (few) times. There is no potable water in the park, so be sure to bring plenty of your own.

The park is open all year but can be hot in the summer months - plan your hikes then for early morning or evening. There is also a LOT of poison oak (and some ticks) here and staying on the trails is the best way to avoid or minimize contact with these. If you let your dog off-leash, be prepared for a wash and tick check after your hike.

Description

The Greenhorn Trail, which was designed for beginning mountain bikers, leaves the right (east) side of Entry Road about 100 feet past the gate at the lower parking area. From there, it climbs through three log, gentle switchbacks to end at the Loop Road about 700 feet northwest of the entrance to the rock quarry.
