Covering 2.8 miles of hillside in the forest, the Trillium trail at California Woods Nature Preserve is the perfect afternoon hike location. Running alongside the Lick Run Creek and traversing rolling hills, the trail reminds one of a roller coaster ride, albeit a very slow one. Part of the trail is covered with steps and wooded planks to aid those of us who might not be as spy as we used to be. I hear in the spring, it is covered with wild flowers as far as the eye can see. This time of year, with the trees bare, it’s easy to see just how the land moves. Walking the trail, one can easily forget they are within the city limits of a major US city. It is a nice break from the city streets, honking horns and miles of concrete.
