This is a classic, short, family friendly hike in Santa Teresa County Park. We took the Stiles Ranch trail up the hill from the Fortini Entrance, and went over the hill, passed a first canyon and a second climb, to then reach MIne Hill Trail, which we took until the junction with Fortini Trail. We hiked along the flat Fortini Trail back to the parking lot.
This is a great season for hiking. The wildflowers are out. The poppies on the switchbacks at the beginning of Stiles Ranch are legendary (and probably not naturally seeded). Lots of blue dicks, wild onions, popcorn flowers, and the first jewel flowers. The kids had fun searching for all these flowers.
