Description

From Larkspur Trail 260 at the west end, this trail travels through dense forest for a half mile before emerging into several small meadows. The trail climbs continuously to the top of Hamilton Mesa. To continue on Bob Grounds Trail 270, turn north on the Hamilton Mesa Trail for about 100 feet and then continue east on the Bob Grounds Trail. The trail contours along a hillside and then drops steeply down to the Rio Valdez and the junction with the Valdez Trail 224. Upon reaching the Rio Valdez, proceed upstream about a quarter mile to locate the remaining section of the Bob Grounds Trail. The trail crosses to the east side of the Rio Valdez and begins a mile long steep, rocky, eroded ascent up the ridge to the trail's end with Bordo del Medio Trail 252.
