Re: Boronda Trail

Date Hiked: November 11, 2010 General Condition: Clear (no obstacles and tread well defined) The trail is in great condition and easy to follow. The October 2010 rains caused the grass to sprout, so things are green already. The only obstacle is the patch of dead milk thistle in grove of oaks at ~1...
