THIMBLEBERRY TRAIL

One of the most serene trails in the Brooktrails greenbelt is the Thimbleberry Trail. This predominantly level trail meanders alongside Willits Creek beneath redwoods, Douglas firs and big-leaf maples for 1.32 miles before it ends at the Last Chance Trail. 


A wide and easy trail, Thimbleberry features four creek crossings and abundant spring wildflowers.

Inlet Trails

Just up from the Brooktrails Community Offices is the Inlet Trail, one of the most picturesque of the greenbelt trails. Seasonally very wet with many creek crossings, the trail follows Inlet Creek and becomes quite steep before ending at Goose Road. Only .85 miles each way, Inlet showcases towering redwoods and Douglas fir trees.
