The first part of the trail is grassland. Then it goes through an oak woodland. The farthest portion climbs up slope into chaparral.

The oak woodlands has Acorn and Nuttall's woodpeckers, Red-shouldered Hawks, White-breasted Nuthatches, Western Bluebirds, and Oak Titmouses.
This early in the winter the chaparral was almost devoid of birds, though a few Spotted and California towhees were calling, even if not seen.
