Comments: This is a great area because you can find more trails every time you go. Try the side paths and you will be treated to miles of lesser known trails which converge on Travis Countries power lines. West of the power lines the bike trails go through some of the prettiest scenery on the greenbelt. This may be the best area to find seclusion at a time when literally hundreds of people are at the creek. I hope this area never gets developed!
