Glade Trail is an easy stroll through grassland, which is home to quail, rabbits, and deer mice.

Glade Trail is an easy hike good for wildlife watching. Look for quail, rabbits and deer mice as you walk through the grassland. Most of the grasses you see today are non-natives such as wild oats. With the introduction of ranching and farming, much of California's native grassland was lost. Explore the oak woodland that is a remnant of what once covered much of California. Many oak trees have been lost due to ranching, farming, industrialization and development. Acorns were an important food source for the area's first human inhabitants. Today, oaks still provide food and shelter for many animals and the shade from these trees is refreshing on a hot day.

Dogs must be on leash at all times. For the consideration of others, please clean up after your pet. Trail closures may be in effect during and following significant rainfall to protect park resources. Trails will be re-opened when dry enough to sustain public use.
