TO FIND THE TRAILHEAD: Head east on Hwy 12, before Mission turn left on Brush Creek Rd. Take the second right onto Jenifer Court. This walk varies from 2.7 to 4 miles as we vary the route. It's mostly flat walking and we follow along Brush Creek and Santa Rosa Creek.
DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF OUR TYPICAL ROUTE: This can be a tricky walk with various trail entrance and exits. We start at the Jenifer Ct. Trail entrance. The gist of the route is to start by taking a left (north) on the blacktop until we reach Montecito Road. By making an immediate right on Montecito we cross Brush Creek to the opposite side of the trail, then continue our walk by following south along the same portion of Brush Creek on the gravel path. We walk until the path curves slightly left (east) along Austin Creek to the trailhead at Mission. We turn right along Mission to cross Austin Creek and get back on the trail along Austin Creek. Austin Creek flows into Brush Creek as we continue going south until we get to Hwy 12. Following Hwy 12 to the right (west) we cross over Brush Creek and get back on the trail to complete the loop a short distance from where we started. We also do this trail in reverse. If you have never done this walk you might want to print out this instruction in case you decide to split from the group for a shorter walk. Our regular group adds on various additional stretches to the Flat Rock area which is accessed by the trail going under Hwy 12. We can continue along Santa Rosa Creek to include the "Friar Tuck" (remniscent of Sherwood Forest)portion of the walk.
