Q 2 LOOP TAQUITZ CHINQUAPIN VALLEY
The Q’s in this title refer to the fact that there are two q’s in the trail names where this hike leads. It starts at Devil’s Slide at Humber Park ( parking pass needed). Be sure and stop at the Ranger Station for a permit, rangers are checking! Dogs are allowed on this hike.
Hike up to Saddle Junction then take the trail toward Taquitz Peak. About 1/2 mile short of the peak there will be a trail to the left with arrow to Taquitz Valley. This delightful route leads you down a well maintained path lined with ferns and flowers. On a map you will see that you have made a circle around Chinquapin Valley. Hence the Q 2 Loop. Trail takes you right back to Saddle Junction where you then descend down Devil’s Slide.
9.5 Miles with Elevation gain of 2300 ft.
