Make up your own Loop!

I made up my own version, which ended up being about a 4 mile loop, versus an 8 mile out and back. I started at Pratt, took a left on Shelf, and then joined w/ Gridley. It was... read more

I made up my own version, which ended up being about a 4 mile loop, versus an 8 mile out and back. I started at Pratt, took a left on Shelf, and then joined w/ Gridley. It was perfect. I left early in the morning, and got the sun's colors on the valley, as I passed grapevines on my way... More

We set off on a fairly warm day, but not super hot. I am sure this hike would be much more taxing in the hot weather that is the norm for this area. Be sure to carry adequate water. The parking lot at the trail head is easy to find but parking is limited. The beginning section of the trail... More

Everything is a private road. It feels like a resident only trail. You have to hike streets to reach the trailhead. No parking signs posted everywhere near the trailhead.

Easy hike with awesome views! Mostly fire road until the serious hike begins after mile 3. The rest of the hike leads to indigenous plant fauna and panoramic views.

This is a fun, moderate hike to take kids or dogs on with you. The trail is well maintained and beautiful. I have hiked this many, many times.

Bring multiple water bottles, sunscreen and ace bandages! Very few sections of this trail are without ankle busting rocks and outcrops.

The Pratt loop starts off in a very promising manner with lots of signs pointing the way up the hill. Keep in mind, you will go uphill for the first hour or so, unless you jog up the hill (love to see you do that, as there are boulders most of the way). If it is hot, you will need... More
