I continue riding down Orestimba Creek Road.
Beautiful scenery here. A lot of these oak trees seem smaller than those in other areas of the Park. I wonder if that's because the trees simply don't grow that as big in this location, or if they are just younger.
Even though Orestimba Creek Road generally follows the creek, segments of it take detours up (and then down) adjacent hills to avoid the creek bed. So my mostly flat ride down here actually has some little hills after all.
There is also a parallel trail here that more closely follows the alignment of the creek bed, but it looks narrow. So I stay on the road for fear that the trail might be an excellent route for hikers, but difficult to traverse on a 10-ton bike.
